Meanwhile, at the online playground


My son is attending a virtual school this year. He told me today how he and his fellow students in his reading class hung around online after class getting to know each other.

He told me how the other kids all came from different backgrounds and different types of schools. Some of them came from private schools and some from public schools. Some were even home schooled until this year. Now they’re all public charter school children, and hopefully they’ve found a teaching process that meets their individual needs.

As I’ve said before, one size does not fit all when it comes to educating kids. For most kids a public online charter school is not the answer.

My son said that all of his classmates agreed they were glad they were attending a virtual school. I’m just glad that the parents were given that choice.
