Online Learning: Addressing Challenges and Seizing Opportunities. Illinois
Alliance for Excellent Education
America's K-12 education system faces three significant challenges: (1) increased global demands for skilled workers, (2) significant financial shortfalls, and (3) a looming teacher shortage. Independently, these factors present significant challenges for U.S. schools. In combination, they create a national imperative for swift action to create a more innovative, effective, and efficient education system. Every day, creative educators are using technology better to meet the needs of students and teachers. Technology can no longer be considered an "add-on" tool in education but rather one that is integral. Embracing online-learning opportunities for students and teachers will strengthen the supply and quality of teachers, improve efficiency, and increase students' college and career readiness. This paper summarizes information about: (1) online-learning opportunities in Illinois; (2) the presence of Illinois state policies that support online learning; and (3) how federal policy supports online learning in Illinois.
