Virtual School is a Good Option
Home school and virtual school are becoming more common. Some people think this is a bad thing, but I think it’s good. People argue that there are disadvantages and say they don’t like home school because you don’t get to have friends or the chance to get scholarships like in public school, but this isn’t true. The same rules apply in both ways of schooling. There are many advantages to going to school from home.

One advantage is that some home schools or virtual schools are totally free. Instead of paying a lot of money to go to a private school, you can still get the education and safety for free. You also don’t have to worry about someone bringing a weapon to school or bullying either. Bullying is really bad in public school, but if you’re at home, you don’t have to deal with it.

Another reason I am for virtual schooling is that you can work at your own pace. If you need to spend extra time on a lesson, you don’t have to worry about the teacher moving on if you don’t understand. You can get one on one teaching from your learning coach and that’s something you can’t really get in public school. You can also move ahead instead of waiting on the rest of the class if you do understand something and don’t need to spend a lot of time on it. If you ever need extra help, you can call or email your teachers any time just like if you had a question at school then you could ask your teacher.

When you go to school all day at public school, you don’t get a lot of time with your family. In virtual school, you get lots of time with your family. You can plan, and go on field trips whenever you want to where you want and it’s so much fun! I also get more time for recess and lunch instead of having to rush through them to get back to class. The biggest advantage of all is not having to miss for anything hardly at all. If I don’t feel good, I can lay in bed or on the couch with the laptop and still do my work. I would never be able to do that in public school. I’d have to stay home and then have a bunch of make up work. I can also work even when the public schools close for bad weather. They’ll have to have a bad weather make up day, but I won’t get behind at all.

Virtual schooling is the coolest thing ever invented. I like it so much more than I ever liked public school. I still get to have friends and the same opportunities as a public school student. I am still learning what the public schools teach, and having more fun doing it. I get to spend a lot more time with my family and I don’t ever want to go back to public school. I think everyone should consider public school if they can.
