"Access to the Internet and virtual schools open up a myriad of choices that can be individualized to meet a child's needs and still be aligned to state standards. The idea of a virtual school is making us look past the status quo, plan for a future that is uncertain, and search for options that are better than what we have."

As a State Representative for six years and Chairwoman of the Missouri House Education Committee, Representative Jane Cunningham has shown tireless dedication to ensuring that students in Missouri receive a quality education.

She worked closely with other state lawmakers and the Missouri Cable Telecommunications Association to propose and pass legislation that supports the creation of virtual schools and other online learning opportunities for students.
