As the importance of school choice has increased so too have the number and types of publicly-funded education choices for Ohio’s K-12 students. Technology has played a role in providing new methods for students to learn and schools to teach. In recent years, technology has enabled the development of electronic schools (e-schools), a new type of virtual school where students attend classes from home via the internet. This report provides information on Ohio’s e-school students’ demographic characteristics, impacts resulting from the transition from a traditional school to an e-school, and the effect e-school enrollment has on a students’ dropout risk factor.
Questions regarding this report should be directed to Jay Zagorsky.
