Are Michigan's standards for high school graduates too tough?
June 30, 2008
I remember when the Michigan Legislature toughened the requirements for high school graduation. I don't remember what they are, but they supposedly raised the bar a whole lot higher. Does anybody have a link leading to a description of this new level?
Michigan lawmakers are looking to take some of the starch out of the changes. They've looked at struggles state students are having with algebra requirements among other things.
What's the experience with this new level of expectation for high school students?
As the August primary elections and the November general approaches, I'm anxious to learn more.
