The Quick & the Ed are beginning a new series of posts looking at Ohio's E-Schools.
In 2005, the Ohio state legislature put a moratorium on the creation of new e-schools, but allowed existing schools to continue enrolling new students. Since then, enrollment has increased 65 percent. It’s accelerated, too: in 2011, e-schools added 3,963 students, more than any other post-moratorium increase. In retrospect, 2010 looks to have been a down year for e-schools in terms of enrollment.
