Inside the home of the Williams family, in Centennial, Wyoming, it looks like a cross between a classroom and a call center. Five children, ages six through 16 are wearing headsets and staring at computer screens.
“Mom, what are we doing next?” yells 6-year-old Selah Williams.
“I think we’ll do reading,” says Liz Williams. “Do you want to get your storybook out?”
The Williams kids are full-time students at Wyoming Virtual Academy—or WYVA—one of two statewide virtual public schools in Wyoming. Liz says WYVA allows her to be more hands-on with their learning.
