Hearing today will examine math grad requirements
WILLMAR -- Minnesota Education Commissioner Alice Seagren is confident that high school juniors will rise to the challenge when they take a new state math test in April. They have to pass it to graduate.
State Sen. Chuck Wiger, DFL-Maplewood, isn't so sure that the juniors and their schools are ready for the new test yet. He'll conduct a hearing today of the Senate Education Policy Committee to discuss the test and its implications.
