Half Of Virtual Charter Schools Judged In New Report Cards Miss Mark











Supporters of the schools say they can be a last resort to students who've struggled in traditional schools and remain prone to dropping out, and that they're an alternative for others who learn best independently or are engaged in time-consuming outside activities. Tom Young, a 38-year teaching veteran, started teaching at eAchieve Academy in Waukesha in 2004 to find a way to improve the one-size-fits-all education approach of brick-and-mortar schools. "We provide a service that helps some students find a place to fit," Young said. "I'm constantly amazed at how well we can adapt and get these kids to be successful just because they are not constrained to a brick-and-mortar school." Young said he believes charter schools have to stop being judged as a massive whole and instead should be looked at individually.
