This research study aims to advance e-learning opportunities in Michigan through 3 deliverables: an analysis of online learning models, implementation strategies, and recommendations to expand e-learning options. The author focuses specifically on Michigan Virtual High School and underperforming schools or schools not meeting Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law.

Author Tom Watkins holds that Michigan cannot lead in the 21st century without casting off the anchors of archaic laws, policies, and beliefs that bind us to 20th century education models. Read this report and witness how e-learning is bringing the learning to the people.
