North Carolina has no online charter schools, but the state is getting ready for them. The state board of education is considering a list of policies to guide these schools. It includes paying them less per student than a regular charter and capping the student to teacher ratio.
Online charters are not your typical schools. For one, there’s often no schoolhouse. You can do all your learning from a screen at home. Science, Math, English classes are all online. There are teachers, but usually class sizes are much larger than at a regular brick-and-mortar school.
