    From an article on the Florida Virtual Academy:

    Nearly 500 children statewide are enrolled in Florida’s Virtual Academy, a pilot program similar to home-schooling but with state-approved lesson plans and certified teachers who communicate with students through conference calls or e-mails or online message boards.

    Similar like apples and oranges are.

    The rest of the piece is quite good, though. The reporter does a nice job pointing out the benefits of distance learning and also spends a fair bit of time explaining that the kids are still g-schoolers and have to take the state accountability tests.
