Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Are students being placed in virtual classes against their will?



As the New York Times reported today, some students in Miami-Dade County say they were placed in virtual education classes this year simply to meet Florida's class-size amendment.

The problem? No one told them they'd be in an "e-learning lab" with a teacher in -- well, it wasn't quite clear where the teacher was sitting, but it wasn't in Miami.

This got us wondering: has anyone in the Tampa Bay area gotten assigned to a virtual class that they didn't choose? Please let us know. (If you'd prefer, you can contact us offline at 813-226-3400 or [email protected]
