AB- It is unfortunate that Deborah Solomon chose to characterize online education as a ”horrible” alternative to the traditional classroom in her interview with the secretary of education. Solomon shortchanges online education by suggesting that online students are learning from a machine instead of ”a beloved high-school teacher.” Solomon should do her homework: online education connects students with highly qualified, experienced teachers — human beings who become beloved to their online students through message boards, chats, e-mails, videos, Skype and more. The machine is simply a conduit for human interaction. In fact, the 2010 online teacher of the year, Teresa Dove of the Florida Virtual School, credits the online environment with allowing more interaction and feedback to her students, noting that, ”You might be separated geographically, but spending that one-on-one time with the kids is the biggest asset for an online instructor.” SARAH BEAN Alexandria, Va.
