Virtual Schools

Here is a very interesting article on online-only, virtual schools, which discusses their strengths and concerns about them.  One quote from the article, addressing virtual schools, seems to me to apply to the use of technology in brick-and-mortar schools as well: “It’s not that the technology can’t contribute in some way—it’s that the technology is not capable of delivering on the claims being made for it.”  Alex Molnar, a University of Colorado research processor and publications director at the National Education Policy Center.  Virtual schools are booming. Who's paying attention?
