Never used a cyber charter school, but the store was hiring a clerk to run the cash register. A young man who was in cyber school applied for the job.

He couldn't do the job at all! A senior in cyber high school, and he couldn't spell, couldn't count out change, couldn't write purchases down on the paper.

I figured the computer did everything for him, checked his spelling, corrected his arithmetic, took care of everything so that he didn't have to know how to do anything. That's all right if whatever job he gets involves a computer that does the actual work. But our store is a paper and pencil store. There is no computer in the store. Clerks have to know how to write and spell and count out change.

I have no idea what on earth these cyber schools teach or whether kids learn anything that will allow them to function in the workaday world.

Hi! I am considering homeschooling my son, and PA has quite a few public cyber charter schools. Has anyone here ever used any of them? Suggestions on which one to go with?
