Just How Effective are On-Line Schools?

I am sure it was a simple coincidence that these two stories appeared next to each other on the ASCD Smart Brief.

You be the judge about the efficacy of "on-line schools" as these are the links to the two stories:

Online school aims to keep at-risk students from dropping out

Online school says too many students slacking off

It seems like the successful program has a home visit in its design, rather than an afterthought.

Sure the kids can do stuff on their own, but sometimes they might need a bit of one-on-one instruction.
