Waukesha School District’s Virtual School Takes Off

Amy Hetzner:

Nearly 1,000 students statewide have applied to attend the Waukesha School District’s virtual high school, raising school administrators’ expectations that enrollment could hit 750 in the school’s second year.

I find this fascinating – a public district going for new business via the net (money follows the students). An education professional recently suggested to me that every student should be required to take one virtual class. Seems like a good idea. After all, we all learn a great deal online these days.
