Michigan's lawmakers are considering expanding cyber schools.
According to our reporting partners at The Herald-Palladium, the Senate may lift the cap on the number of schools and number of students they can enroll.
Online schools allow kids to take courses from home. In Michigan, they are regulated as charter schools.
Some parents like the idea because children can learn on their own.
If they are bright, they are constantly challenged. If they are having trouble learning, they can progress at a different pace.
However, some educators feel the state is falling for a "cheap" way to educate kids.
Also, companies such as K12, Inc. and Connections, Inc., which manage the chartered cyber schools in Michigan and other states, are making huge profits.
