I hope this never catches on. While the philosophy might be there, the truth is that districts won't go to this because of the pedagogy, but rather because they'll see it as a justifiable way to bring in lesser-quality teachers for lesser pay. They'll see this as a way where the system does all the real teaching, and the "teachers" are simply tutors helping them with their homework. I know the concept is greater than this, but the future of education, unfortunately, is cost-effective cookie-cutter teaching and some districts might see this as an affordable route. It's already happening in charter schools across the country - Deny the art of teaching and simply teach the system.
