    homeschool parents, wanna-be homeschool parents, kids in intense sports training in non-school sports, and people who travel or who want to travel.

    But the online providers don't actually care. They just want bodies.

    Oh, and you get a free computer if you enroll your kid.

    I agree - the online charter schools are not appropriate for anyone who doesn't have a committed parent doing the watchdogging.

    We've been trying to find some good online curriculum that we can use to supplement our brick-and-mortar school offerings; as a small rural high school, we can't offer everything we'd like. I have been surprised at how thin the offerings are, especially for the gifted/self-starter kids that are an obvious fit for online courses.

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
