Florida passes online learning bill

A bill that expands online learning opportunities to elementary school-age children has been passed by the Florida House, The Miami Herald reports.

The bill (HB 7063) was approved by a vote of 100 to 16 on Tuesday and now goes to the Senate.

It allows the Florida Virtual School to expand part-time course offerings to children in kindergarten through third grade, News-press.com writes.

The bill also removes the requirement that public school students spend at least a year in public school before they can enrol in Virtual School classes.

MySuncoast.com writes that supporters of the bill say it will promote school choice and support home-schooled children.
