MIAMI (AP) - More high school students enrolled in math and science classes. Increasing numbers seeking online learning opportunities. Fewer wanting or able to find a job after school.
Those are just some of the changes under way at the nation's high schools described in a report released Thursday by the U.S. Department of Education.
The annual "Condition of Education" report found a number of shifts in how students are learning and what they are doing with their extra time.
There has been an increase of more than 1 million students taking a distance education class, most of those online, within the last decade.
