Is Personalized Learning the Answer?

In Part I on the topic of personalized learning author, Justen Reich states that there are 3 purposes to education....
  1. to prepare people for gainful employment,
  2.  to prepare people to contribute to our democracy,
  3.  to enrich the human experience. 
Reich argues that personalized learning satisfies standardized curriculum assessments and narrow assessments  but is incompatible with most school purposes.  What do you think?  Has there been enough experience to draw meaningful conclusions?
