'HOME' WORK: CITY BIDS FOR ONLINE HIGH SCHOOLS is an interesting September 29, 2008 New York Post article. It reports that NYC is working on allowing high school students to earn credits toward high-school graduation online. The NYC Department of Education is reportedly working with the state on getting a waiver of the requirement that students spend a certain amount of hours per year in a classroom - known as "seat time" - to get credits for a course. Apparently, this is known as "i-school."
Stay tuned on this. I am sure that other school districts will be watching what happens in NYC.
