    With the large number of homeschoolers in this state, virtual K-12 ed is essential. I think one challenge will be providing support for parents to help. I once looked into starting an online journalism class for high schoolers. Maybe it’s time to look again.

    As a homeschooler for many years I am so excited to see this. A large majority of my family lives in Ohio and they have had this for several years now. I have always thought MI behind for not embracing this sooner. As a parent I want to be active in my children’s education. The school my children were in was not friendly to this at all. I know several schools that are so I am not complaining about all school districts. Cyber schooling would fill the gap in my opinion.

    When will this be rolling out? Fall 2010?
