With online classes it gives you more opportunities for you to get an broader education. Online classes would be better for students who tend to miss more school because they could get online when at home and work on their homework. Online is more flexible in that way, and you could go at your own pace. But, along with all the good things, it also has very strict deadlines, that you have to meet, even out of school hours. Also, in the circumstance of our school, the online classes continue on during potato harvest meaning you would have to continue your homework while working in the spuds. Online has many pros and a few cons but it has effected some students at our school for the good.
