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.
