Despite the fact that online education has been around for a while, it is becoming increasingly popular as schools seek to address the nationwide shortage of qualified educators. Some smaller school districts in Texas are moving to a four-day school week, while in Florida, schools are turning to veterans with no teaching experience to fill in. The number of applications for teaching positions has increased by a factor of three in the past year, according to Shailey Baranwal, CEO of Elevate K12, a company that recruits and employs virtual teachers by providing the necessary infrastructure for their placement in classrooms across the country. Student opinions on virtual education are divided, with some arguing that interpersonal interaction is essential for learning and growth.
