MO Task Force Considers More H. School Requirements



Jefferson City, MO – A state task force says it might call for high schoolers in Missouri to need more math, English, science and social studies before graduating.

The state's Education Commissioner, Kent King, formed the panel to study how to improve high schools.

Missouri right now requires 22 units of credit to graduate. But there's also a college prep track that calls for 24 units and includes more math, English, science and social studies.

The group, though, says much of what's considered "college prep" would probably help all students and, thus, could become required.

But the panel's final recommendations are still a couple months away.
