New Jersey could change the way it provides education. The state — one of 17 with no statewide virtual school — is considering proposals for two virtual charter schools.
The Department of Education is reviewing two virtual concepts: a charter for dropouts in some of the state’s larger cities, and a charter in Newark for K-12 students.
NJ Spotlight reports both schools would favor students who’ve not benefited from traditional education models, and because the effectiveness of virtual learning is uncertain, the modesl would likely be virtual/traditional hybrids.
