Florida poised to make some graduation test rules tougher

Before state education leaders vote, possibly Wednesday, they’ll likely hear from educators — and students — who think the proposed changes are a bad idea that will keep some teenagers from graduation.

The State Board of Education could vote today to make it tougher on students who can't pass the two Florida exams needed for a diploma. They'd need higher ACT or SAT scores to still graduate.
