Online K-12 Enrolment Keeps Growing

March 9, 2007

According to eMarketer.com, 63% of US school districts had at least one K-12 student enrolled in online classes in 2005-06, for a total of 700,000 American students.  It is predicted that online course enrolments will increase by a further 19% in the next two years.  Students go online for various reasons, including a desire for extra help, advanced content, or course offerings that are unavailable locally (particularly in rural districts).  eMarketer
