New Virtual Schools Report from NEPC & Barbour

The National Education Policy Center, with support from the Great Lakes Center, has released their second major report on virtual school policies and practices in the United States. CASTLE blogger and friend Michael Barbour served as a coauthor on the report and had this to say:

“While there has been some improvement in what is known about supplemental K-12 online learning, there continues to be a lack of reliable and valid evidence to guide the practice of full-time K-12 online learning. Yet it is the full-time K-12 online learning that has seen the greatest growth in recent years.”

This is the second consecutive year of this report and it is quickly becoming the standard for virtual school policy in the United States.
