TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- High school graduation requirements
would be increased under a bill that has cleared the Florida
Senate.
The chamber voted 36-1 for the bill (SB 4) that also would do
away with the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, or FCAT, for
high school math and science and replace it with end-of-course
exams.
The measure next goes to the House where a similar bill (HB
7053)has one more committee hearing left before it can go to the
floor.
The legislation would add geometry, algebra II, biology,
chemistry and physics to the list of courses needed to graduate and
require students to take at least one virtual class.
The requirements would be phased in from this fall through the
2014-15 school year for entering freshmen.
