N.J. School Administrators Favor Online Learning

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

In an effort to ensure a superior statewide system of education, the New Jersey Association of School Administrators (NJASA) is advocating for online and blended learning and the infrastructure to make it possible, according to testimony by Dr. Richard Bozza, Executive Director, NJASA, before the Joint Committee on the Public Schools in Trenton last week.

“Students learn better with online and blended learning,” said Dr. Bozza. “Studies show that students involved in online learning outperform their peers, and students who mix online learning with traditional coursework do even better.”

Online learning, which occurs over the Internet, has grown by 30 percent annually in the U.S. with 50,000 enrollments in the year 2000, and over 2 million enrollments in 2010, according to the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL).
