My own state of NC is one of the latest states to begin offering virtual schooling as an online charter school option for public school students. Since it was never available until now, I never had to make a choice between using a virtual school or homeschooling my own way, but I'd wager to say that had it been available in the first years of my homeschooling experience, I would have likely given it a whirl.

SHS mod, Blue Ipsy has actually used a virtual school with her oldest daughter and will be hosting a discussion next week on the pros and cons of that educational option. If you've been curious about virtual schooling, or have some experience yourself with it, please drop in next week and join the discussion!
