The Georgia Senate has approved two pieces of legislation having to do with online education. Lawmakers voted 36-15 along largely partisan lines in favor of a bill that would require all high school students to take at least one online course before they graduate. If the bill becomes law, Georgia would join just a handful of other states — Alabama, Florida and Michigan —that require online classes. Democrats criticized the proposal as a mandate.
