A real threat to virtual school

-A A +A

It's ironic that, while Virginia serves as a technology hub, the General Assembly may be sending the state's one virtual school offline due to a funding decision made this year, an official with the Thomas Jefferson Institute for Public Policy believes.
Chris Braunlich, vice president of the think tank, posted a blog on the group's website arguing that the decision will impact not only the virtual school hosted by Carroll County, but also any rural division that wants to offer more educational opportunities to its students.
