Atlanta’s virtual academy is a child rights catastrophe.

Sixth graders need structure so they can learn. High schoolers won’t graduate if they spend all day working and do school at midnight.

In the past, I’ve expressed serious concerns about the child rights implications of virtual instruction, but the so-called “AVA Flex” program offered to middle and high school students by Atlanta Public Schools (APS) is on a whole other level.
