There seems to be a push for distance learning K-12 education.Should we replace traditional k-12 education with distance learning?
Everyone's heard of distance learning for higher education, but what about K-12. There are online public and private schools that are available online. When we tried to bridge the digital divide we may have taken things too far. Some would believe that this idea is bad because there is no physical education. However some would argue that this may decrease social interaction and the amount of bullying would be reduced. With so many variables to consider: are we improving learning?
