For me with 3 children and a husband I prefer online school. You have to set certain times just for that. I choose nap time and my kids bed time. It's quiet and I have plenty of time on my hands. =) You do have to be very dedicated or you will find a million better things to do with your time. Just my thoughts... =)

I prefer regular school. People who do online schooling have to be extremely self-motivated. If you are very self-disciplined, then maybe it's for you. But there are no reminders of assignments, no questions directly after class, no friends right there to ask for help. I really recommend the traditional not online classes.

I got my undergraduate degree (my Bachelor's) through a traditional college, but I am getting my Masters through an online program. I like the online program better because I am learning a lot more and am able to set a homework schedule around the other things I do. My husband is doing an online University and he loves it because he can still work and go to school.

I still prefer regular school as there is the real enjoyment of being inside a learning institution. Regular school can also have you to have lots of friends and enjoy school activities with them. Online school is good only for those who have no time for attending regular school, but if you have all the time, why miss the fun of being in school!

I would rather go to regular school because you get more help. Also the teacher is responding to all your questions. If you don't understand something you can always ask whereas online schooling seems kind of dull and sometimes there might be technical difficulties with the technology. also you wouldn't meet new friends and people, as your in a class by yourself. I think it will bring peoples socializing class down.

I prefer to go to the regular school rather than the online one. As the employers still pay attention to your certificate and your graduated school. If it is a famous school, then they will consider to employ you. An online school seems to be informal and unprofessional and therefore not many places accept or approve this certification. I love China

If I am a student today, I would still prefer to go to regular school where in you can socialize with real people not like in internet site, it is called social networks but it's a different world from the real world. Regular school is a more great way to appreciate the world where in you can see real friends also.

It depends on the personality of who is taking it. I took online school over the summer in between regular school and loved it because it kept me busy. However, I could never take only online school because being in the house all the time makes me depressed. If you're a very social person and you like getting out everyday, then I suggest regular school, but if you are the loner type and don't mind staying in one spot, then perhaps online school is for you! Online is basically just like being on a chatroom, only you're chatting with other students and your teacher. At least, that's what it's like in Florida.

I would always prefer a regular school and online school would not provide the all round development of kids, kids need to play games , keep themselves active. when we people remember school we don't only remember studies , we remember making friends ,learning so much from each other ,experiences , learning the value of friendship , working hard on projects and on completion the satisfaction, the value of team spirit which is learnt in games. School is the foundation where kids have their overall improvement , they learn the values of many important things.
