The Assembly Education committee will review a bill today aimed at better preparing high school students for college and the workplace. The bill requires schools to notify high school freshmen and their parents about special academic programs such as honors courses and career skills programs. The bill also calls for the higher education system and the Department of Education to design a plan ensuring high school standards align with college and work force expectations. Schools also must also offer opportunities for students to take remedial classes during the school day if they fall behind on credits needed for graduation.
