We’ve long been supporters of a high school diploma that ensures every graduate is ready for college and work. Washington is getting closer. The Senate Early Learning & K-12 Committee yesterday heard testimony on SB 6092, a bill that will implement the State Board of Education’s recommended 24-credit high school diploma. The House Education Committee heard testimony on their version of the bill, HB 2181, earlier this month. It’s time to get this done. Check out Partnership for Learning’s legislative tracker to follow the issue and sign this Excellent Schools Now petition urging lawmakers to take action this session. All of Washington’s students deserve a diploma for the 21st century.
