Expanding Graduation Requirements

Michigan soon could expand its options for meeting the math requirements needed for high school graduation.
The state House on Tuesday unanimously approved a bill that would allow a financial literacy course to count as an option toward meeting graduation requirements. The bill already has passed the Senate and will be returned to that chamber before being forwarded to Gov. Jennifer Granholm for her consideration.
The bill also would allow students to complete Algebra II over a two-year period with each year counting as a credit.
Michigan's high school graduation requirements start with the graduating class of 2011. Four math credits are among the several requirements students must meet to get a diploma.

    This is wonderful! A practical class that all students will use in their life after high school. Imagine where we might be if all students had taken this financial literacy course before they graduated!
