Consistent Policy in K-12 Online Education

The world of online education is expanding at an incredible rate. Each year, more and more K-12 students are enrolling in online courses to supplement, or at times, replace traditional coursework.  Even though the phrase used is “K-12”, most K-12 online providers offer courses only for secondary students.  By law, however, if a student is eligible to attend school, then online schools must accept them as well.  The expansion of online education requires further study of sound policy, implementation of such policy and the impact online education has on enrolled students.

Please take a moment to review the work of Bonnie Magnuson and Greg Spahn, two students from Bemidji State University who explored the need for consistent policies in K-12 online education as part of their graduate work.  The paper can be viewed here.
