A summary of the innovative funding for distance learning at the state level.

"The majority of the states are using what has become traditional funding for distance learning. This includes general education funds, lottery generated funds (which in most cases does not increase the educational funding but relieves the state funds by the amount that the lottery adds) e-rate funds, Challenge grants, State Challenge grants, Star Schools. A limited group relies heavily on corporate and foundation donations."
