Students enrolled in Memphis City Schools are now required to take at least one online class in order to graduate. “E-Learning as a graduation requirement came up because of [an] upswing in students taking online courses,” head of online learning for Memphis City Schools Betty Brown told Education Week. “We feel they needed to be prepared for that type of life experience. Their lives are going to require them to learn online.” There are currently 28 classes available to high school students and 12 to children in middle school, but city schools officials hope to soon raise those numbers.
