Our daughter is currently an A student and has expressed interest in Elementary Education. She has some anxiety over new things, future college included.
She believes an online degree is the way to go. Both my wife and I are against the notion, feeling that online would not be very highly regarded and would lack valuable in-person experience. Wife and I both have master’s degrees from local public and private four-year universities. Wife’s sister is a teacher, as well, who also agrees with us.
Especially considering that she is wanting an Education degree, would you agree that the online route is probably not the way to go? We plan to set up tours to local colleges in the area (Kansas City) by next spring to get her acquainted with what’s out there and get her questions answered.
Is this a realistic plan? Have online options really changed much over the the past 25 years? We’ve always viewed them as less than ideal, more geared for two-year degrees.
Any input on our predicament? Other things to consider?
Thanks in advance!
