As convinced that I am, that teachers' unions are about adults' jobs, not about educating children, I must say that online schools, in my experience, do not do a good job of educating students. Because, human nature being what it is, the kids can too easily not study, not do their homework independently (not that kids in school always do so either), and who knows who is providing the answers to online exams? Anyway, the kids I know who attended online schools, didn't seem to have learned much of anything. Perhaps, it depends on an attentive parent essentially acting as the teacher during the student's interaction with the online program.
