States and school districts are implementing more online K-12 public schools, in which students can take some or all of their courses online, or programs in which students take online courses at brick-and-mortar schools. Thirty states permit students to participate in full-time online education, and they enroll 250,000 students, an increase of 40% over the past three years. Concerns remain about the quality and consistency of full-time online schooling, with some touting the benefits of hybrid or blended-learning options.
