Virtual Charters In Indy

Indy Star’s Staci Hupp looks at some new virtual charter schools coming there soon.

Good a time as any to note that though these schools are all the rage in some circles, they seem to raise a lot of questions about accountability and what a public school is. Not a reason not to have them but a tough challenge for authorizers…high potential for abuse. Ball State is a strong authorizer though with good leadership so those concerns may not be applicable in this case…

PS–The ed “establishment” has been fretting for some time about the link between home-schooling and vouchers, but isn’t the real problem delineating home-schooling and these virtual charter schools in places where the charter authorizers aren’t so good?
