This article, from the perspective of a principal, superintendent and mentor of indigenous schools for over forty years, looks at personalized learning and student choice with the lens of cultural responsiveness. The author describes personalization at STAR (Service To All Relations) School, a K-8 School in Navajo Nation, which is grounded in Navajo values with a keen understanding of the importance of 21st Century skills and student voice.

This article is a great example of a student-centered, personalized model that values rigorous education while building on a foundation of respect for the cultures, identity, and diversity of its students.
