The State Board of Education officially adopted new state high school graduation requirements this morning. The vote was 14 to one in support of the changes. El Paso Democrat Martha Dominguez voted against it.
Last year, lawmakers got rid of the previous graduation plan which required students to take four math, science, English and social studies courses.
Under the new plan, all students are required to take four years of English and at least three years of math, science and social studies. Students will then have to choose one of five paths to graduation, known as endorsements.
