Florida High School Students Required to Major

"The Legislature gave final approval to a bill Thursday that requires high school students to declare a major, similar to college students. The measure now goes to Gov. Jeb Bush, who pushed the requirement as part of a sweeping education overhaul approved by the House 90-24. The Senate passed it earlier in the day 39-1. "It's important because it'll make the high school experience more relevant for a broader range of students," Bush said. "This will give them a chance to pursue education where their interests lie. ... There still will be core curricula credits that they'll need to pass." The bill also requires that high school students take a fourth year of math and that middle school students receive career planning instruction."
