Abstract

As online education become more prevalent, opposition to this trend most often uses the attrition rate as one of the key elements as to why this method of instructional delivery is not sound. This paper will examine this argument and explore some of the reasons as to why drop out levels vary so much between different schools and models. There are many variables that factor into success and failure of students, this article will identify some of the more prevalent causes to create a deeper understanding of attrition in relation to K-12 cyber education.
