Technology Helps Turn Around Failing Rural Arkansas SchoolWhen Principal Daisy Dyer Duerr came to St. Paul in 2011, St. Paul High School was on the verge of being taken over by the state. Students were not meeting state expectations in math or literacy. “We choose to live in this area, but we don’t choose for our kids to have any less of an education because of where we live,” Duerr said. Duerr believed technology could help turn around the school. Through several grants, the principal transformed traditional classrooms into digital learning spaces.
