Okay, so here’s where we are now. Online k12.com high school proved an unsuccessful experiment. My son prefers a teacher directly instruct him, rather than study independently for a series of online quizzes and tests. He needs feedback. He needs to discuss what he is learning, to ask questions and get answers, to be asked questions, to develop his critical reasoning skills.
So, last Friday we went and visited a private school that offers one-on-one attention and flexible scheduling. Once my son finishes one of the courses he is currently taking online, we plan to enroll him in the private school.
I believe in trying things out. If something doesn’t work, try something else.
Failure is always an option. Failure is necessary to learning.
