A lot of schools have implemented this, to varying degrees and varying successes already. The school I work for has the supposed capabilities to do these things through the school blogs and class pages and online grade systems that operate in real time. There are two inherent problems with this, though. The first is educators who don't understand how to use these tools, either because of lack of technical skill or because of a lack understanding of how these things can be applied to the classroom. The second problem is the frequent apathy on the part of the parents and students toward actually using these tools. If a project like this were to go off, there would have to be some focus on educating educators to operate and apply this technology as well as consideration on how to motivate students and parents to use the tool.
