GOVERNMENT AND POLITICAL ROUNDUP: High schoolers now have to take three credits of math and science under new law
Wisconsin high school students will have to take more math-and-science courses under a bill signed by Governor Scott Walker yesterday. He said it would help students get better-prepared for computer science careers. The Republican Walker signed the bill at a Madison technology firm during national Computer Science Education Week. The new law requires high school youngsters to take three credits each of math-and-science instead of the current two.
