Posted: Updated:

Friday's Feedback at 5:00:

With the start of school coming up quickly, Michigan students are getting more online education choices.

This year, students have five new cyber schools where they can take all of their classes online and many districts are offering more online classes.

Public school students in grades 5-12 will be able to take up to two online courses per semester offered by any district or the state's virtual school.
 
The Michigan Department of Education allows 192 different programs where students can take all or most of their classes online.

Have you or your students ever taken online classes?  Which do you prefer and why?

It's tonight's Feedback at Five.
