A recent news story was highlighting various graduations taking place this weekend. Among those were public school students that were "virtual-schooled." While I had heard of virtual schools before, (primarily associated with homeschooling), I had no idea of just how much this option was growing within the public school system. I have no idea how updated this is but here is a basic List of virtual schools. This list does include some private ones but if you click or search further, many are publicly funded as either charter schools or in lieu of the typical public school system.
1)What impact do you feel this will have on the public school system and the students?
2)Do you believe that this form of education will continue to grow? Why/why not?
3)If you support this form of education, what rate do you think that taxpayers should be charged? Many school systems are receiving the same rate from the gov't as a student enrolled in their brick and mortar options.
