Some parents in Washington state who say they want a more focused learning environment for their children are turning to Washington Virtual Academies, an online-learning program for students in grades K-12 also known as WAVA. One mother said her son is completing seventh grade at home through WAVA to get away from the distractions of large class sizes in local schools.
