Online Schools ...

Two decades ago, online schools were unheard of. Young people who had to work to earn a living got to choose between going to school and working. Moms who were tied down at home to take care of their children have to wait for their children to grow up before thinking of continuing their education. People who were disabled and can’t go to school every day just forego their education altogether.

Now, thanks to technology online schools have given these people an option to continue their education. In an Online School the student is given access to a website portal for their class. Through this website they can also access their assignments, required readings, and syllabus. Professors can be reached via email or by the traditional phone.

I’m glad more and more people are opening their mind about online education. Who knows maybe in the distant future this will become the norm instead of the exception.
