Online Schooling: A Cautionary Tale
Saultz, Andrew; Fusarelli, Lance D.
Journal of School Choice, v11 n1 p29-41 2017
In this controversy piece, we portray online learning as growing too fast for existing regulatory structures to oversee and generally as having failed to live up to its potential. Operators, particularly for-profit operators, have generally not produced successful schools. We urge reforms of cyber schooling funding mechanisms, data systems, and oversight.
