Bill To Change High School Curriculum Requirements Advances
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A State House committee has advanced bills that change the requirements under Michigan’s Merit Curriculum law.
The current law mandates classes such as Algebra II and a Foreign language. The House Education Committee reported a bill that would still require two years of foreign language, however, students could opt out of the requirement on an individual basis.
Another bill would allow more flexibility within the personal curriculum options. Some lawmakers, and some local school district leaders, say the current law is too inflexible for those who wish to enter a vocational education, or who wish to enter the workplace after graduation from high school.
