Like Georgia's, the Tennessee virtual academy is only going to become more popular. This "institutionalized" home schooling is a nice way for willing & able parents to be directly involved in their children's education. Using a prepackaged curriculum like K12's, is invaluable in helping less experienced parent educators instruct their kids.
Not so fast joshkotw,
Check out EPB's prices: http://epbfi.com/plans/. Their cheapest internet plan is $58/ month. How many folks are going to switch to plans that are nearly twice as expensive, even if it is a faster connection?
I'm afraid Comcast and AT&T are going to look much more affordable by comparison.
Check out their prices: http://epbfi.com/plans/. $58/ month IS THEIR CHEAPEST INTERNET PLAN? That's crazy.
Global overpopulation is a myth.
The ENTIRE WORLD's population would roughly fit inside Montana and each person would have a 30-foot by 30-foot square to themselves. That's less crowded than the property my family of 4 (plus 2 dogs) live on here in Chattanooga.
Sure there are spots of local overcrowding: Mexico City, New Delhi, etc., but overall, the planet could support a MUCH larger global population with no problems.
