Personalized Alternative Education is more of a perspective than a program. It is built upon the beliefs that there are many varied ways to become educated, many types of educational environments, and different structures. Further, Personalized Alternative Education recognizes that everyone can be educated and it is in society's best interest to ensure that all are educated to at the minimum, a general high school education at the mastery level. To accomplish this requires that we provide a variety of strategies and options. Each student can find a “path” that is comfortable to facilitate individual learning and progress. The heart of Personalized Alternative Education is the teacher. Students involved in Personalized Alternative Education schools indicate that the most important characteristic of teachers is that they care for students. Alternative educator Emmanuel Pariser says the “most powerful influence on students is friendly attention in a supportive atmosphere.
