Graduation Could Be Delayed For Some At Mpls. High School

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Some high school students in Minneapolis may not graduate on time because their teachers weren’t licensed to teach some of the subject matter.

Broadway High School is a teen and pregnant parenting program within North High School.

The Star Tribune reports that some students were given credit for math and science, just for taking a culinary arts class.

The school has now decided not to let those credits count toward graduation, but they will count as electives.

In all, four employees are on paid leave while the district tries to sort it all out.

    If they represented the course as one that fulfills the math and science requirements, it’s unfair to now change students’ academic status.

      I agree… IF they want to make changes, is should go into effect for the next scholl year. not this one.

    What gives here? Why did this happen? Is this another example of education being a diploma mill process? Is this why some folks want North to remain open?

    Is [old school]underwater electric typewriting, aka. keyboarding, today, offered too? Something definitely smells ‘fishy’ here?

    This story sounds like another story about the educational system going to Hades for snowball exercises!

    These courses were taught at North High School. They were classes for pregnant or troubled teens in the hood…..Minnesota is ranked 37th in the nation for education….blame the Union……or Bush which ever comes first….
