W.Va.’s superintendent wants BOE to keep social studies requirements

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia's public schools superintendent wants the state Board of Education not to reduce the number of social studies courses required for high school graduation.

Superintendent Steve Paine said Monday he'll make the recommendation based on an overwhelming public response.

The proposed social studies reduction is part of a larger plan to modify high school graduation requirements.

Last month the board placed the proposal up for public comment through Jan. 24.

It is aimed at giving more flexibility to counties and allow high school credits to be tailored for individual students.
