Students in Missouri’s public schools¬†will be able to take online courses for free, thanks to legislation signed by scandal-plagued Gov. Eric Greitens on Friday, just hours before he resigned from office.¬†The Missouri Course Access and Virtual School Program will significantly expand online education for kids in K-12, while students’ district or charter schools pick up the tab. This will allow students in small, rural or underfunded schools that don’t have adequate teaching staff to take classes in advanced subjects such as Chinese or creative writing.
