Gov. Peter Shumlin and Education Commissioner Armando Vilaseca are announcing proposed changes to math requirements for all Vermont high school students.
The proposed changes are in response to the latest test results that show a significant drop in math and science scores when Vermont students enter high school.
Vilaseca said last month that the state could ask the board of education to change the graduation requirements to require that all students take algebra and geometry.
Students are currently required to take three years of math but the standards don’t specify which math courses.
Shumlin will hold a press conference with Vilaseca today to discuss the proposed changes.
