More and more parents are preferring their kids go to school online as opposed to attending class at a brick-and-mortar school. Ana Gault is a teacher in Brownsville, but she won’t be found teaching in a typical classroom. Her home office is the classroom and students see her through a webcam. “[Online learning] is growing; it is scary how fast it is growing,” Gault said. Online learning with schools, like Texas Connections, has an enrollment of 6,000 students a year in Texas, with more enrollment growing every year. “For a lot of parents, brick and mortar [schools] now have so many issues,” Gault said.
