Online Schools Have A Place

Posted By News On February 20, 2012 @ 6:23 am In Today’s Local News | Comments Disabled

Online only schools have received approval from the Iowa Department of Education as a legitimate education avenue. Pella School District Superintendent Greg Ebeling tells KNIA/KRLS News that he thinks the online schooling isn’t a bad idea, but he sees it mostly as a supplement to home schooling. He says that he has a difficult time envisioning a child being able to get a full and rigorous education without a person present to help them through problems, at least on occasion. Ebeling adds that early education will likely remain a person based experience, but he can see secondary school classes being taught online with success.
