NC bill would create new vocational HS diplomas

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A new bill working its way through the North Carolina legislature would create new high school graduation requirements focusing on vocational training to help graduating students not headed to college to get jobs.

 

The measure backed by new Republican Gov. Pat McCrory sailed through a legislative committee Wednesday without opposition and appears headed for a quick vote in the Senate. The measure directs education officials to develop curriculums with increased emphasis of career and technical courses. High school diplomas will carry new seals endorsing the graduate as career ready, college ready or both, depending on the courses they complete.

 

The bill would reduce licensing requirements for career and technical teachers, potentially allowing for applicants to be hired without earning a 4-year-college degree or having any classroom teaching experience.
