Lawmakers mull implementing curriculum changes


WILL WEISSERT, Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Top members of the Texas House are mulling implementation of a new law that overhauled high school curriculum while easing standardized testing requirements.

The House Public Education Committee convenes Tuesday to discuss ways to tweak one of the most-watched bills of last year's session.

It scrapped the rule that most students take algebra II and other advanced math and science courses in order to give young Texans more flexibility to focus on vocational training.

The law also cut the number of high school standardized tests for from a nation-high 15 to five.

On the committee's agenda are possible ways to reduce standardized testing in lower grades.

Members will also discuss creating new math and science courses that can better-prepare students for the Texas workforce while still being academically demanding.
