Is online learning effective for middle school students?

In addition to students being able to build their schedules and work at their own pace, students have more choices about their classes and how to spend their time, increasing their internal motivation to pursue their academics.

Online learning can also help protect and bolster a student’s mental health, especially as it can aid in decreasing instances of bullying. The safer students feel in their academic environment, the more effective their learning will be.1
