Snyder Signs Bills Loosening Merit Curriculum Requirements
Governor Rick Snyder has signed bills that loosen math and foreign language requirements to graduate high school.
The Gongwer News Service reports that the new laws allow students to use career and technical training to satisfy Algebra II requirements, and to obtain the two credits of foreign language to graduate. Supporters say the legislation allows students to use options from career-oriented education. Some critics say the bills undermine the state's education standards.
