Graduation requirements bill heads to Senate

Santa Fe, NM (KKOB)–A bill making high school graduation requirements more flexible is headed to the New Mexico Senate after winning overwhelming approval in the House.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, H-B 83 would remove a requirement that high school students take a college class for dual credit or an Advanced Placement or honors course.

Representative G. Andres Romero, one of the co-sponsors, says the bill would allow districts and students to decide for themselves what classes are best. The vote in the House was 66-1.
