Enrollment in state-run online schools is on the rise, though broad gaps remain in the availability of digital resources and tools across the country's large, midsized, and small school systems, a new report concludes.

The report is the 11th edition of a nationwide review of online policies released by the Evergreen Education Group, a Durango, Colo.-based consulting company. It describes a variety of public and private entities, including Connections Education, a commercial provider of online education; the Michigan Virtual School; the National Association of Independent Schools; and the Texas Education Agency.

It notes that some growth restrictions are rooted in government policy: 20 states, for instance, bar open-enrollment in online schools, and many do not allow students to choose individual courses.
