Kelley Bruss writes about the Northeastern Wisconsin Charter School, opening this fall:
Those who?ve experienced online education say good things are in store when the Northeastern Wisconsin Online Charter School opens in the fall.
But students enrolling in the Web-based courses shouldn?t expect a light load. The work is demanding, said Sara Dennison, 17, a Gibraltar High School junior who took an oceanography class online last semester.
?You have to be very driven to want to do the class,? Dennison said. ?You really have to stay focused on your own time and be very self-directed to finish it. ? You really have to put the effort in and want to learn it.?
