Virtual Schooling Book

Virtual Schooling: A guide to optimizing your child's educationIn 2006 online learning grew to more than 700,000 enrollments among K-12 students. As the creator and co-author of the first book about Virtual Schooling, I felt a significant responsibility to help create an overarching definition of this emerging educational sector because in coming years it will emerge as the primary method by which many children will be educated. My experience as a leading homeschooling visionary, authority and author was a catalyst for an important determination: that is, the definition of the term “virtual schooling” must encompass all existing methods available today for parents, as well as approaches and resources yet to be recognized, created or defined.
