… but they’re not homeschooling.
- Journal Sentinel, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 28 April 2006, Small change a big deal in educationÂ Â
McCormack threw out a suit filed by the Wisconsin Education Association Council that charged the Wisconsin Virtual Academy violated state law regarding public education.
In ruling against the state’s teachers union, the court legitimized home schooling, opened the public education door to the digital age and expanded the degree to which state education spending follows children. All are things that can change everything when it comes to K-12 education.
If I’m not mistaken, homeschooling was already ‘legal’ in Wisconsin.Â This decision did not legitimize it.
The writer gets it correct at the end, but there’s a lot of text between the top and the bottom.
- Unlike the programs under which most Wisconsin parents who home-school, the Wisconsin Virtual Academy is a charter school. Enrollment is free, supported by state education spending at a tune of more than $5,000 per child.
