Supporters say expanding the Virtual School prepares children for college and work, eases teacher shortages in critical areas and helps kids learn at their pace. It’s been 14 years since Florida started teaching children online, and the state now is a national leader with the largest virtual K-12 school in the country. And that might just be for starters. Lawmakers are considering requiring every student in public school to take at least one online course before graduating, a move that would dramatically expand virtual education in Florida.
