Stuck in a Boarding School, but Liberated by Online Edcuation

Stuck in a Boarding School is a powerful blog post written by a high school senior enrolled in an online Advanced Placement US Government History course.

Read this powerful blog post, Stuck in a Boarding School, and the comments following it.  Once you get to the student's blog post, you will also learn that the post is on a communal blog for students enrolled in the Online Girls School AP US Government & Politics course. Each day another student in the class posts on the blog.

Feel free to read some of the posts to find out what students are learning in the history course and what their online learning has meant to them.

There's also an About link to learn more about the school, the course, and the blog.

Later in March, we will Skype with the teacher, Mike Gwaltney, who also teaches in a regular brick-and-mortar high school in Portland, Oregon.
