On July 8, 2010, the Alliance for Excellent Education released two documents to help education leaders and policymakers understand the issues of increased global demands for skilled workers, significant financial shortfalls in school districts, and a looming teacher shortage. “The Online Learning Imperative: A Solution to Three Looming Crises in Education” is a brief that describes the three crises confronting the nation and suggests ways that online learning can lead the U.S. education system out of them. The “Online Learning: Addressing Challenges and Seizing Opportunities” state profiles present state-specific information about the three crises in each state, online-learning opportunities in that state, the presence of state policies that support online learning, and how federal policy supports online learning in that state.
The Alliance hosted a webinar to release these publications and facilitated a conversation among experts using questions submitted by participants from the around the country. ETLO's Barbara Treacy served as one of the panelists. Follow the link below for audio/video of the discussion.
