Online education is good but I believe children need to be able to interact with others before they isolate themselves. Now I did take an online course in Accounting. I got my associates degree that way, but to me it was more difficult than actually going to a school and seeing the instructor in person. If you had questions sometimes it take the instructor toget back to you in two days and thats not good if you have an asianment is due, For younger kids school is better for them. Other wise they won't now how to interact with people when it is time for them to get out in the real world. You have to have social skills in todays world to get a job. I know you can earn money on the internet but its not the same. I noticed that some feel they have learned more from the internet to earn money than going to college but the already had the social skills to do that there has to be a balance. I allowed my son to socialize with friends on the internet but he still had to go to school and he did and graduated in 2010 I am so proud. He met his girlfriend on facebook and than we went and met her in person she was only 38 miles away and she is a wonderful person I also met her parents in person so I think if people do that it would be ok.
