    A pretty good article on the topic. And not once is homeschooling mentioned! The biggest drawback I see to these programs is that they are still lock-stepped:

    School officials at Primavera Online High School say virtual schooling is the wave of the future, and not just for a niche audience.

    Primavera sees both high achievers and those struggling in school enrolling in online high school courses, Lester said. As in traditional schools, students move through the lessons at the same pace in a block schedule. They take two courses a day for six weeks. Lester said block schedules allow students to dive into a subject and spend time on it, not rush through six courses in a day.

    When they can figure out that all kids do not learn on the same schedule is when they’ll really start to be useful.
