Schools Drop an Online Curriculum After Teacher, Parent Complaints

Wall Street Journal |

The online program, called Acellus Learning Accelerator and purchased by schools to help with remote learning, is sparking complaints from parents and teachers in Hawaii and elsewhere. Hawaiian parents by the thousands signed a petition and lodged complaints calling Acellus content racist, sexist and low quality, according to a Change.org petition and written testimony to the Hawaii board of education. 

Seven schools in Hawaii, four school districts in California and at least one school district in Ohio dropped Acellus this fall.
