Rick Scott releases education plan: Should high school graduation requirements equal university admission requirements?

Rick Scott released an education plan today (hat tip to Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida Political Pulse blog).

Allow me to dig this out of the weeds of the Scott education plan:

Due to a lack of post-secondary readiness, a Florida student can earn a high school diploma but still not meet the minimum requirements for admission to any of Florida’s state universities.  This is unacceptable.

Should every high school graduate have the minimum admission requirements for a state university?

This isn’t a radical Scott thing (there aren’t any radical Scott things – the whole plan looks like standard Florida Republican education doctrine).  In fact, I heard a relatively progressive state official say the same thing recently – that the high school graduation requirements should match the state university admission requirements.

So does that make sense?

    I had originally thought that was what was meant by “articulation” but I was mistaken. 😀

    But seriously. If the legislature wants successful graduation of most of the cohort, they need to lower requirements. If they want most graduates to be able to get into college, they need to raise requirements.

    The ed bureaucracy will adapt.
