Another great story from NPR – this time, they discuss how public schools are using innovative online teaching to increase their curriculum. This allows smaller schools to give students the benefits of big school topics. The article focuses largely on Virtual Virginia, a state program offering dozens of classes to middle and high school students in Virginia.
Most of the 3,000 students in the Virtual Virginia program enroll in online advanced placement courses. And thanks to the program … Rappahannock County High, can offer more AP classes, allowing it to compete with local private schools, which often use AP courses as a selling point.
