About 200 Rowan County students are experiencing a new and flexible kind of school. It’s not a traditional brick-and-mortar school, and it’s not a home school, either. North Carolina Connections Academy, a state-funded virtual charter school, is available free to all kindergarten through 12th-grade students in the state. Teachers teach, students learn, and no one stands in line or waits while someone is disciplined for disrupting the class. Nathan Curry is the superintendent of the statewide program.
