Virtual schooling works

A new report states that virtual schooling and online mentoring helps students.
The North American Council for Online Learning (NACOL) released the new report, Online Teacher Support Programs: Mentoring and Coaching Models, at the annual Virtual School Symposium today.

The research report studies teacher mentoring programs that several virtual schools developed to support new instructors. Successful mentoring programs are key in developing effective new virtual school teachers and to offer a strong model for collaboration and improvement with experienced faculty coaches.

Teachers who use these approaches are seen as progressive and involved educators, in my opinion.
