Document Number: 10462K-12 Virtual Schools - Over the last several years, opportunities for students to receive some portion of their education online have become much more widespread in K–12 public schools. Researchers estimate that more than one million K–12 students in the U.S. were engaged in some form of virtual education in the 2007–08 school year, representing nearly a 50 percent increase over the previous two school years. This legislative brief presents a rough timeline of the rise of online learning options in Tennessee and across the country.
