Cavanaugh and Repetto were quoted in a supplement to the Aug. 24 issue of Education Week in a Special Report on K-12 Education Technology—titled  “E-Learning for Special Populations”—which examined the growing e-learning opportunities for students with disabilities. Cavanaugh was quoted as saying policymakers are warming to the idea that online programs should be an option for special populations of students, and she hopes that shift in thinking will attract more researchers to what is still a lightly populated field.
