E-learning could be future of education

The State Board of Education has “significant interest” in electronic learning. A new bill could let schools teach kids online with a pilot program. If all goes well, it could be a new way for districts to deal with snow days. The program could eventually replace them. Mark Reynolds says he enjoys spending snow days at home with his daughters, but admits those days could be more productive. “I mean, they’re fun, but if we can get the learning done then, and not have to worry about spending X number of summer days in school… I don’t want to have to think about that.” He might not have to think about it under a new plan at the Statehouse. It could allow kids a chance to learn at home when school is called off in certain situations, such as snow or emergency days.
