Virtual schools, real concerns
The Christian Science Monitor
Some 40,000 to 50,000 students in 37 states are enrolled in virtual schools, according to the US Department of Education. Virtual schools have received mixed reviews. Advocates of virtual learning say it opens new horizons, particularly for students in rural communities where choices are limited, or for those with special needs due to illness or serious involvement with athletics. But critics worry about the lack of face-to-face interaction. And some homeschoolers worry that enrolling in a virtual school may lead to loss of independence and control of learning.
