EBSCO Alerts

ebscoFirst, I did not receive the alert for virtual school.

Next, I did receive the alert for cyber school, but there were no relevant items.

Finally, once again I didn’t receive the alert for K-12 online learning.

So nothing to report this week.

AB- Research indicates that traditional public schools are less effective in serving Latino students. Yet latino students, but not their parents, exhibit greater school satisfaction than do their counterparts. The purpose of this study was to examine Latino student and parent satisfaction with their cyber school and prior traditional public school using results from surveys of students (53.7% response; n-269) and parents (n-2 3 2 ; response – 48.7%). ANOVA indicate that Latino parents rated their cyber school and prior traditional public schools more positively than other parents. Ixitino students rated the cyber school but not their prior traditional public schools more positively. We discuss implications and directions for further research. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
