Is Online Education Customizable Enough to Yield Better Results?

In addition to hosting quality branded campaigns, Blue Phoenix Media also owns and operates The Academic Network, which presents students with alternative education solutions.

This is a question that The Heritage Foundation’s The Foundry is positing lately–comparing it to the inefficacy of brick-and-mortar schools that do a major disservice to students by trying to standardize the educational experience. Essentially, there’s no way that any public school infrastructure can scale up and simultaneously generate superb results by employing a standardized approach.

The role of online education as it stands, according to The Foundry, is an accent to core classes. As teachers can’t be uniformly trained to educate sets of students to the exact same standard year after year, they can ensure that students are getting their diet of required courses–with online course work acting as auxiliary aids designed to help struggling students catch up. While this can’t guarantee uniform results either, it can at least help equalize the playing field without stretching teachers too thin.
