Primary Virtual Schools - New Emerging Trend

Regardless of the controversies going on against online education, colleges and universities have been translating parts of their curriculum into distance learning courses and students continue to take them without entering the campus. A new trend is emerging these days, online education for primary schools. These virtual schools are operated by state governments or local school districts and promise to give students more flexibility while also lowering education costs for the state. Most of these virtual state-operated schools will accept enrollment from students anywhere in the state.
A law creating virtual schools legal is currently under consideration in the state Tennessee. Even if virtual education is a panacea for an ailing public education system, it’s clear that it is not going to disappear anytime soon.

  1. I think that kids should go to school.
    School is not only about "learning math" and "how to write", it's also about getting in the sociality.

  2. Education is a right, but not a right for the children. It's a right for ourselves to advance as a society.

  3. SQ said exactly what i was thinking. In college it's ok, but when you are a kid it would seriously fuck you up. Kids need to relate with other kids. Going against it, will take a toll later in their life.

  5. People just don't have time anymore and they have to resort to these types of classes.

    I also question their effectiveness though.

  12. I fully agree with this article. Many of times a classroom education can sidetrack for certain courses like math. The teacher may also have a difficult time showing students step by step. A computer can do this and will re teach a student the same problems as many times necessary.
