E-school students performing worse than district school peers, study says

A colleague sent this to me. No surprise – well, except the fact that it is coming from another neo-liberal organization.


Ohio students enrolled in online charter schools aren’t learning as much as their peers in brick-and-mortar schools and are dragging down the state’s charter-school system, a new study has found. On average, Ohio’s e-school students “are academically behind at the start of each school year and lose even more ground during the year spent at the e-school,” according to the report, Enrollment and Achievement in Ohio’s Virtual Charter School, by June Ahn, an education-tech expert and associate professor at New York University.
