Textbook-l received an interesting email from Brianna Laugher about a new "Open High School" in Utah. Brianna frequently sends interesting information and news to that list, and might be one of the most active people on it. Unfortunately, textbook-l is an oft-unused communications medium.
Anyway, I haven't done any digging yet to see if there is truth to this story (I have no particular doubt that it is true). If anybody has more information about Utah's open high school, or information about what educational materials they are going to be utilizing, I would love to hear about it. If we could find a way to get Wikibooks' foot in the door there, that would be awesome as well.
