And now they are growing in North Carolina

Online charter schools spawn NC debate (from wral.com)

The state budget that Gov. Pat McCrory signed into law earlier this month includes a provision requiring the State Board of Education to authorize two online charter schools to serve K-12 students by next fall.

North Carolina already has one of the nation’s biggest online public school programs, but it’s intended to supplement a traditional education. Virtual charter schools would replace a traditional school completely.

Supporters say they provide options for non-traditional students, but skeptics say they’re a handout of taxpayer money to big corporations that don’t always deliver a quality product.
