The case against online schooling
Because most learning happens online, students in online schools have to work to socialize. Students aren’t facing peers and instructors regularly, so some may feel lonely or stunted when learning to effectively communicate. For some students, this factor is enough to discourage him or her from participating. For parents, this can add an extra layer of responsibility, as students will need to participate in activities outside of their ‘school’ setting.

For some students, the flexibility of an online school, especially at the elementary level, can lead to distraction. It can be hard to stay on task in a home environment, especially if there are other children present or if there are activities occurring .

Access to internet and related technologies should also be a consideration when weighing online elementary school. If your student is unable to regularly and quickly access learning materials, he or she may fall behind. It is also important to remember that these schools are relatively new - not all are evaluated and accredited, so write my essay for me cheap and do your research.

The bottom line
Online elementary schools are a great option for some children, while others may struggle. Ensuring that your child has a great education takes work from the many adults in his or her life, which holds true for both traditional and online schools. Before you commit to one form of education or another, carefully weigh the options - and let your child weigh in too.
