BREAKING NEWS BRIEF
Over the years, Josh Duggar (star of one of TLC’s headlining shows, 19 Kids and Counting) has made a lot of headlines, for a lot of different reasons. Today, he’s making headlines once again, but the details that have emerged so far are pretty murky.
What we do know is that according to public record, Josh Duggar was booked and put into federal detention yesterday afternoon in a Washington County Detention Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
What we don’t know is why…
At the moment, under charges, “hold for other dept” is all that is listed. And apparently, no bond has been set.
But there are some theories that his arrest is related to his past history of molestation and sexual misconduct. But there have been other legal issues for Josh Duggar as well.

Distance learning is a method of study where teachers and students do not meet in the classroom. The Internet, e-mail, and other technology are valuable tools for classes. Simply put, distance learning is when students are separated from teachers and peers.
In distance learning, students study at home on their own, and the learning is more individual and varies on speed and timeline according to each student and their availability. Because distance education is remote, it can connect students to universities worldwide, making it more accessible for students in different countries.
It is also known to be more affordable, which is another factor that helps make education more accessible to many students worldwide and at different socio-economic levels. In addition to its affordability, there are other benefits of distance education.
