Committee Deletes Foreign Languages

Cheyenne, Wy – Lawmakers are looking at setting requirements to get money from the new Hathaway Scholarship program. The state wants to put a specific curriculum in place and any student that wants to get the scholarship must take those courses.
The legislature's education committee reviewed the proposed curriculum Monday. They left provisions in place for students to take science, math and English, but removed the requirement for foreign languages. Chairman Representative Jeff Wasserburger says he feels like this gives students more time to take electives.
