According to Achieve’s recently updated list of states with “college- and career-ready” graduation requirements, twenty-one states make the cut. California is not one of them. Two-thirds of the states with college- and career-ready requirements have a foreign language and/or arts requirement for graduation.
With AB2446 poised to effectively eliminate California’s art/foreign language high school graduation requirement, does California really want to more further away from having college- and career-ready standards?
