Ethics & Social Responsibility Online

Some high schools, including National High School, offer online courses and diplomas. Such high schools tend to be attractive to individual-sport athletes, such as tennis players, golfers, and skaters, because they allow flexibility to train, travel long distances to compete, and do coursework in between. Online courses also allow students to work at their own pace. Unlike public school, students pay to earn credits and don’t have face-to-face, in-person contact with peers and teachers. Some of the online high schools are for-profit businesses making a considerable amount of money.
