DENVER (CBS4) – State lawmakers got a lesson in online schools on Thursday.

About 1,000 people rallied at the Capitol to talk about the benefits of learning from home over the Internet.

Students even set up classrooms to talk about the flexibility of online learning.

“One of the nice things about online school is that you can go at your own pace, so you can just kind of keep up with the course work,” said John Harhai, a Colorado Connections senior. “One of the things l like to do, I like to get ahead.”

The Colorado Coalition of Cyberschool families sponsored the rally. It was a way to thank lawmakers who support the online option for public education.

    I would guess that the NEA/CEA would be a powerful lobby against on-line schools.

    My co worker’s daughter attends one of these schools. Her mother and some at work did all her homework.
