Students Protest School's Use of Online Curriculum Designed by Facebook Engineers

Published on 07/18/19 / In News & Politics

High school students at Brooklyn's Secondary School for Journalism staged a walkout last week to protest perceived "wrongdoings" at the school, which include the use of an online curriculum called "Summit Learning" that stresses independent learning. Schools across the nation have implemented this free web-based program, which was designed with the help of Facebook engineers and funded by CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan. However, students at the Brooklyn high school — and at other schools — have criticized the program for its lack of effectiveness, as well as expressed concerns over data privacy.
