Tougher High School Grad Guidelines Now Law

By  | 

Two bills toughening high school curriculum requirements have been signed into law.

Students will be required to take four credits each of math and English, three each in science and social studies, and one each in physical education and the arts.

Two foreign language credits also will be required, but will first affect the class of 2016.

Governor Granholm says the new requirements give Michigan students and the state a brighter future. She spoke at a middle school in Lansing today.

The state's only current requirement was a civics class. The other requirements were left to local school boards.
