Last week, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools voted to reduce the number of credits that students will be required to meet in order to graduate. In addition, foreign language is no longer a requirement. Can we lower our standards any more? I mean, really. Students need a foreign language in order to go to college and it is optional? Kudos to CMS for setting our kids to fail, at worst, and making it harder for them to compete in the workplace, at best. A great damn job!
