On Wednesday, parents from all across the state will converge on our state capital to rally for virtual education at Tennessee Virtual Education Day. We’re fortunate to live in a state where virtual schools are an option for families. We don’t know what we’d do without our school. My child’s traditional public school just didn’t get it done, and we needed something different.
Choices in education can provide vital outlets for students who have difficulty learning in the traditional setting of public school. Others are bullied and need to learn in a safe environment. Some families simply choose virtual schools because they provide a first-class public education.
Our state lawmakers have created opportunities for Tennessee children, and we are grateful to them.
