ROTW: Virtual high schools

Okay, it’s time to try out a new feature here at Dangerously Irrelevant: the

Report of the Week (ROTW). Can I find and feature an

interesting education-related report each and every week? I think I can!

This week’s report is from Education Sector:

of Reform: Virtual High Schools and Innovation in Public


Here’s a quote from the report:

There has been no shortage of solutions for improving the nation’s public

schools. School leadership, teacher quality, standards, testing, funding, and a

host of other issues have crowded reform agendas. But an important trend in

public education has gone largely unnoticed in the cacophony of policy

proposals: the rise of a completely new class of public schools – “virtual”

schools using the Internet to create online classrooms – that is bringing about

reforms that have long eluded traditional public schools.

All Reports of the Week will be listed under the Reading category (and, in most instances, the Research and Evaluation category). Happy reading!
