Mandatory online education is in your child's future by Andrea Hermitt

In New Jersey high schools, there are new requirements that all students take advanced math, science and language courses in order to graduate. They are also considering a required online course.

Other school districts are past just considering it.

  • In Michgan, students have had to take at least one online class to graduate since 2006.
  • Alabama students adopted the requirement in 2008.
  • Florida and Idaho have full scale online curriculums (that are geared mostly toward students who would prefer to work from home and are in competition with the homeschool movement.)
