Virtual School Enrollment
Missouri’s virtual school has filled almost all of the available spaces:
Missouri’s new virtual school has only a few free slots still open, but more students can still take classes if they pay tuition, says the director of the online education program.
It’s interesting that almost no one protests the virtual school. The only complaint I’ve heard is that it doesn’t yet offer middle school courses. On the other hand, charter schools, tuition tax credits proposals, and busing programs are accused of hurting the traditional public schools.
Maybe this is because students have the option of taking one or two online courses while remaining in a public school. Other choice options like charter schools might be more popular if they offered individual courses or after-school tutoring to supplement traditional schools.
