Misleading Headlines – Can Online Education Help Reform Rural Schools?

This past Saturday the first item that was in the Virtual Schooling In The News was:

Can online education help reform rural schools?

Can online education help reform rural schools?
(Pixabay)
Students in rural communities are not performing academically as well as their peers at urban and suburban schools, according to a recent study from the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty. Distance-learning programs are one way to foster reform in these rural areas, researcher Will Flanders writes.
RealClearEducation (5/8)

 

The report in question is entitled Apples 2 Apples: The Definitive Look at School Test Scores in Milwaukee and Wisconsin for 2018, and it written by the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL).  According to the Center for Media and Democracy, WILL is “a conservative, libertarian, public interest law firm backed with millions in grants from the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation. WILL is a member of the State Policy Network, a web of right-wing ‘think tanks’ and tax-exempt organizations in 49 states, Puerto Rico, Washington, D.C., Canada, and the United Kingdom” (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wisconsin_Institute_for_Law_and_Liberty).  So as you might imagine, they use a questionable methodology to ensure that the charter schools come out on top.

The reason I bring it up today is because of the news item above.  In the article from Real Clear Education, they write:

Online education also represents an important path for education reform in rural communities. Online programs can allow rural families to access distant schools, with curricula that may better fit their needs of their children.

The interesting thing is that if you look at the WILL report, the word “online” doesn’t appear at all.  The word “cyber” only appears once – in the name “Central City Cyberschool.”  The word “virtual” appears three times – two of which are names: Rural Virtual Academy and Wisconsin Virtual Academy High.  The third instances is a sentence that reads, “seventeen non-instrumentality charters operate outside of Milwaukee, however many of these are virtual schools or schools devoted to at-risk students” (p. 4).  So there are no statements about the value of online education in the report at all, but this new outlet seems to think otherwise.

Interestingly, the new outlet describes itself as “the [RealClearEducation] team curates the smartest news, opinion and punditry offering its readers a comprehensive, non-partisan summary of the top education news happenings of the day.”  The key word is “non-partisan,” which as you can see in this case means taking a report from a right-wing think tank and then make ideological assertions that aren’t even mentioned in the report.

Anyway, I wanted to add this analysis…

AB- Traditional school districts do not have a lot of experience with virtual schools and have lost students to state and charter virtual schools. To retain students and offer alternative learning opportunities, more public districts are starting their own virtual schools. This study was an examination of foundational processes at three California virtual schools in traditional school districts. An analysis of the findings revealed that sites perceived the establishing founder, preliminary research, district support, teacher and staff selection, financial evaluation, and curriculum decisions as keys to the founding process. The analysis also led to surprising conclusions, including the need for virtual schools to constantly change and adapt and the focus in this study of organizations over technology. The findings have implications for traditional districts starting virtual schools. The study also indicates that changes in policy could reduce the need for organizational adaptation among virtual schools in traditional school districts.
