Recent statistics demonstrate many benefits for students and parents. According to the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) “on average, students in online learning conditions performed modestly better than those receiving face-to-face instruction.” In a report addressing over 1000 studies performed by the DOE, data demonstrated that online learners tend to spend more time on educational tasks than students in face-to-face situations, which often results in more consistent educational success.
