Official government report suggests changes in Swedish legislation
Sunday, 25 November 2012
A recent report in Sweden may make virtual schooling more available. The basic argument contained in this report is that every child should have an equal right to education. The report suggests that children in community care and children in need of distance education (such as children engaged in elite training) should be able to take part in distance or remote education.
The report also suggests that the state make a distinction between distant education and remote education. The former is when education is asynchronous and where students and teachers are remote from one another geographically. Remote education occurs when the teacher and student are only separated geographically. The full report (pdf in Swedish) is available here.
