Currently, Section 161.670 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri (part of a course access law passed in 2018) requires that parents of students who wish to enroll in the Missouri Course Access Program (MOCAP) request and receive permission from their local school district first. In the first two years after passage of this law, dozens of parents have been denied this permission and some have had to hire attorneys to get it. Districts were reluctant to give up students or funding to virtual education.
With every public school in the state shut down and every student expected to learn virtually (if at all), we need to make immediate changes.
