HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii's future high school students might need to hit the books a little harder. A Board of Education committee voted to increase graduation requirements.
Beginning in 2018, students would need to take additional math, science and writing classes, and complete a senior project.
It's part of the DOE's application to receive more than $70 million in federal funding.
The unions will review the plan before the full board votes.
