There’s a debate here in South Carolina, and across the country, about the value of online schooling. As we fight against the coronavirus, what was once an alternative is now becoming mainstream. However, those who argue that online education holds students back don’t understand the value this option provides.

I know this because I am a graduate of an online school. When many, through no fault of their own, abruptly moved to a virtual option in the spring, I was in my last semester at the Cyber Academy of South Carolina. Attending school this way, even before the pandemic began, provided me an opportunity to pursue my dreams and discover a path I never would’ve imagined. And it has the potential to offer countless students the same experience.
