Students who have been schooled with online classes and then enroll at our school are usually behind our students.
My main concern is that someday most students will take their high school courses online and teachers will no longer be needed.
Completion rates drop off without a face-to-face component built in. I wonder how effective the funds used to support online classes are in terms of completion rates for courses without that support system built in.
I would love to see the state provide funding opportunities for online courses
