Memphis, Tenn., schools will require all students -- beginning with this year's freshmen -- to take one online course to graduate from high school. The district offers 28 online high-school courses and will work to increase access for students to take Advanced Placement and other courses online. "We feel they needed to be prepared for that type of life experience. Their lives are going to require them to learn online," a district official said.
