  •  There are also virtual schooling options in MI. (2+ / 0-)

    My daughter is taking a Japanese class on line, and there are many other options--designed to augment the course offerings that smaller or poorer districts can't provide.

    Furthermore, the proposed legislation has nothing to do with expanding options for students, or supporting students with special needs; it's all about punishment (for "bad" districts) and profits.

    So until you know more about 1) MI's options already in place, and 2) the terrible legislation that is being proposed here, I suggest you refrain from commenting on this topic.

    I'm seeking to organize DKos members in SE Michigan--roughly, from the Ohio line at Lake Erie NE to Port Huron, W to Flint and back S from there. If you'd like to join our new group, Motor City Kossacks (working title), please Kosmail me.

      is autistic and has the virtual school option.   The answer is more money for these programs, not privatizing them.

      I think DWFMom has her own agenda, and is trying to find anywhere to advocate for it.

      Even where it does not fit.

      If she thinks that privatizing education will help her child?  Wait until they start charging her for it, or cut services because the shareholders are bitching.
