Legislation to create the Missouri Virtual Public School to teach children in all corners of the state by computer has cleared a House committee and been sent to the full House. Representative Brian Baker of Belton, the sponsor, says some students simply aren’t served by traditional methods of teaching. Baker says the virtual school would, in all liklihood, primarily benefit rural children or special needs kids. Enrollment would be limited to 500 students the first year, 750 the second, and one-thousand in the third.
