Bill Would Let Middle School Students Earn High School Credits

A bill was introduced in Wisconsin that would allow middle school students to earn high school credits starting in the 2014-2015 school year. Students would be taught using high school equivalent curriculum teachers licensed to teach at the high school level. The bill would address budgetary constraints that have led to career exploration courses being cut, would allow students to focus on more college readiness courses, and would allow students move through high school more quickly.
