    The Potential and Problems of Virtual Schooling



Virtual schools enable students to replace some or all of their traditional classes with a virtual equivalent, and their continued growth prompts a reflection on their advantages and disadvantages. Factors such as socialization, pastoral care, learning style, cost, access and equity, views of school education, democracy and computer technology all help to explain the possible consequences of implementing virtual schools. It may be necessary to consider what skills, knowledge and values students should have in a future society before it is possible to decide whether virtual schools are ultimately beneficial.
