A bill that would create new high school diplomas and course plans that emphasize vocational or career paths that don’t require four-year college degrees unanimously passed the Senate on Thursday. The bill directs the State Board of Education to require, beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, that diplomas carry ‘new seals’ endorsing graduates as “career ready,” ”college ready” or both, depending on their courses. The measure fits into Governor Pat McCrory’s campaign platform that not all students must attend traditional colleges to obtain well-paying jobs. http://www.wxii12.com/news/
