“Online Learning: Is the Computer the New Chalkboard?”

Sheraton Hotel 623 Union Street, Nashville, TN 

Online learning is becoming increasingly popular across the country. However, some states have implemented regulations that have hindered the movement’s progress, barring access to online education for hundreds of thousands of children. Is Tennessee one of those states where online learning can thrive, or do state laws and regulations put up a firewall for students and families?

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Please RSVP by Monday, March 26th to Ryan Turbeville at or (615) 383-6431.
