Plan would change state curriculum to allow for more vocational training

LANSING (WKZO) -- State Senator John Proos is looking forward to a new legislative session in which an education proposal of his could be taken up. Proos says that he and other lawmakers think Michigan's required high school curriculum should make allowances for students who aren't necessarily heading to university after graduation, and will instead be pursuing technical and vocational training.

So, a plan's been laid out that would let them spend more time in such high school classes while changing requirements when it comes to some electives. At the same time, career education courses would be more closely integrated into the state's curriculum. Proos says this will make for an education system that suits all without pigeonholing anyone.

The plan would also let students get credit for internships or apprenticeships. Such a proposal's already been passed by the State House.
