Learning From Home Means Never Having to Miss a Day
Most of Missouri, including much of the Kansas City and Saint Louis metropolitan areas, are still covered in snow. The recent storms that swept through the region left many schools closed — even here, in the Saint Louis area, where the snow was not as bad as predicted. However, for any of the hundreds of Missouri students enrolled full time in one of the state’s virtual schools, their education can continue as scheduled (provided they still have power and Internet access, of course). Nor do they need to wait outside for the school bus in arctic temperatures. Full-time virtual schooling isn’t for everyone, but for self-motivated students who don’t like dealing with terrible weather conditions, it’s a viable alternative to traditional schools that deserves more attention.
