This study examines the current American public school system and its reliance on the traditional factory-based education model to determine the systems efficacy in educating military-connected children, a student population with unique academic, social, physical, and psychological challenges. Rather than depending on the traditional education model to educate military connected children, this study recommends the implementation of a competency-based personalized learning modelstrengthened by technologywithin an expanded domestic network of the United States Department of Defense Education Activity to improve the K12 education of military-connected children.
