Feedback at 5:00: Graduation Requirements

Posted: Updated:

High school seniors around Northern Michigan are wrapping their year up, preparing for exams and getting ready for graduation.

Meanwhile, middle schoolers are starting to schedule their classes for their freshmen year.

Education is always evolving, and a Michigan House panel approved changes to the state's high school graduation requirements.

Under the bill, students could forego taking Algebra II if they take a career and technical education class, but it must also include Algebra II content.

Some could also skip the foreign language requirement.

The bill now heads to the House floor.

For tonight's "Feedback at 5:00", what kinds of requirements would you like to see added to or taken away from a student's graduation requirements?
