K-12 Online Learning: A 2008 FOLLOW-UP OF THE SURVEY OF U.S. SCHOOL DISTRICT ADMINISTRATORS
Sponsored by Sloan-C
A few highlights...
* The overall number of K-12 students engaged in online courses in 2007-2008, is estimated at 1,030,000. This represents a 47% increase since 2005-2006.
* Respondents report that online learning is meeting the specific needs of a range of students, from those who need extra help and credit recovery to those who want to take Advanced Placement and college-level courses.
* Perhaps the voices heard most clearly in this survey were those of respondents representing small rural school districts. For them, the availability of online learning is a lifeline and enables them to provide students with course choices and in some cases, the basic courses that should be part of every curriculum.
