The State Board of Education has just approved new graduation requirements for IN high schoolers.

William Hill declares support for Scientific Games-NYX deal
Those acquisitions gave SciGames itself a almost 40% interest in NYX, and effectively neutered the William Hill threat. The bookmaker company has agreed to give its support to the takeover of NYX by Scientific Gaming.

In response, Teresa Meredith, president of the Indiana State Teachers Association, released the following statement: "I am disappointed in the board's vote today".

They will go into effect starting in 2019, for the freshman class.

The plan is to let the students pick a pathway tailored to their interests and abilities.

Individualization: The new pathways move from a one-size-fits-all approach to one where every student chooses a route to graduation that reflects their goals after commencement. Students will have to show post-secondary readiness by earning an honors diploma, an industry certificate, apprenticeship or complete a test like the SAT, ACT or ASVAB.
