A virtual school is on the verge of becoming a reality in Missouri. The House has approved and sent to the Governor the virtual school bill. State education officials would devise a method to teach using the Internet. Computers at rural schools would be able to access advanced courses not taught locally. Home computers would allow students recovering from a severe illness or injury to keep up with course work. Only 500 students would participate the first year. That would double by year three. State education officials estimate it will cost $2.5-Million to operate the virtual school.
