Headline: School days are out; online schools are in

Nutshell: The internet will replace our good ol' schools with home online schools. Shocking but possible...

Vision: I see a world devoid of schools in the near future. No more classrooms, no more chalk and no more bullies. In a way it's good but in another way it's terrible. School days are supposed to be the golden years of your life. No more friendships... An intelligent box is all what we would have left to chat with. Perish the thought! It's too horrible.

I really hope my prediction is wrong because a life without the normal schools will be boring. Believe it or not, school's kind of fun. We all know it but we're just too stubborn to admit it.

Well, the internet is changing rapidly day by day. All we can do is wait and see what the future has in store for it.
