    Not for the family gathered ’round the old PC for the next e-school lesson. I have no problem with the cyber schools; they seem to fill a need. I do have a problem with quotes like this, though:

    “It’s the best of public education and homeschooling,” she said. “(It) tailors the program to individual needs so a student can go at his pace, whether it’s slower or faster.”

    It may be an improvement on standard factory g-schools, but it’s a far cry from the best of home education. Of course, a home educating parent who signs her kids up for any flavor of g-school probably never knew what the best of home education was all about.
