    The Wisconsin State Journal has a very good article up on cyber charters. Home education is mentioned but only in the proper context:

    Jaime, Tori and Hope Leonard wake up at 6:30 a.m. and by 7:30, they are neatly dressed and – virtually – in school.

    Like children who are home- schooled, the sisters don’t have to leave their house… But unlike home-schooled children, the Leonards are actually enrolled in a public school – a virtual charter school that is part of the Appleton Area School District about 100 miles away.

    The article goes on to point out that cyber-schoolers have to take the state tests. And it goes a fair way into looking at the pros & cons of the e-schools. Worth a read.
