Virtually educated? Or not...

...nobody seems to know one way or another.

In her column in today's New York times, Gail Collins reports that online educators are targeting poor families. And business is booming! Especially since lobbyists for a powerful online education company convinced Tennessee legistators to scrap the state's own online education program in favor of a privately-run program.

But apparently, nobody has studied whether the online education is a success or not. If other attempts at privatization are any indicator, probably not.
