Virtual learning marches on

"A Craig County school district’s online learning program aimed at students whose parents prefer to opt out of traditional bricks-and-mortar schools was accredited Thursday by a sharply divided state Board of Education, which also placed the district on probation with strict requirements," the Associated Press reports.

Dinosaurs and lefties on the state Board of Education, apparently unaware that the world is changing, look silly as they cling desperately to the status quo. There's no putting the genie back in the bottle. Indeed, none other than the superintendent of the Union Public Schools in Tulsa is boasting that her district is working to give students more virtual learning opportunities, making virtual courses available from E2020 and the Florida Virtual system.
