The ACCESS program is essentially what it stands for, Alabama Connecting Classroom, Educators and Students Statewide. It is a program aimed at using technology for providing access to advanced diploma courses, more classes being offered, advanced placement, supplemental courses, and more. Access does this by internet based courses, interactive video courses, and the blend of the two. They have a lot of great ideas and strategies to keep this alive.
To get the full affect of ACCESS check it out at http://accessdl.state.al.us/. Alabama needs to catch up with the rest of the country in academics, that is a fact. Many low income or rural areas don't have these advanced educational classes and tools the state requires, and should require. There should be no limit when it comes to the education of our children. Current educators as well as upcoming educators need to keep fighting for these programs to exceed and expand.
