Abstract: This paper is dedicated to an innovation in the sphere of education – virtual school, which tends to become the leading in present times. The paper closely considers distinctions between virtual and face-to-face school and gives its classification. A significant part of the paper is dedicated to the question of efficiency of virtual school as this new kind of education has many more opportunities for both pupils and teachers. There are results of up-to-date researches as evidence of its obvious pluses and minuses. The result shows the insufficiency of elaboration of this theme, as proves that there is an obvious shortage of information on quantitative and quality indicators of functioning of this sphere of human activity. Also, the paper touches the question of the interaction of for-profit virtual schools and federal politics, which is identified as rather insufficient for effective lobbying of interests of virtual school.
