Lawmakers consider how to better prepare high school kids

State lawmakers have long agreed that a high school diploma in Washington should do more to prepare students to attend college or start a career. In 2009, legislators set their sights on new graduation standards that would require students to take 24 credits of coursework instead of 20. The idea was to develop minimum course requirements for high school graduation that mirrored those for college entry, while still leaving room for students to take electives or pursue an alternative path of career and technical education.
