New SREB report points to growing interest among government officials in expanding online education

A survey by the Southern Regional Education Board points to dramatic growth-and growing interest-in state-run virtual schools.
By Robert L. Jacobson, Senior Editor, eSchool News

Don't look now, but online learning-though still in its infancy-is well on its way to becoming a major part of state-sponsored education across the country.
That's the impression left by a new report from the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB), whose member states have long been in the forefront of developing government initiatives in virtual schooling.
The 112-page report, which is being released today in advance of next week's annual meeting of the SREB's Educational Technology Cooperative, provides state-by-state details on the scope, financing, enrollment, curriculum, teacher preparation, and other aspects of government-supported virtual schools throughout the South.
A copy of the Report on SREB State Virtual Schools, which is based on an online survey conducted last spring, will be available at The Southern Regional Education Board's web site.
