MORGANTOWN — Area teachers met in Morgantown with state Board of Education members Dec. 7 to discuss proposed changes to Policy 2510, which addresses education quality in public schools.

One of the proposals would reduce the number of credits required to graduate from 21 to 24.

The idea, the state board said, would be to free up students to explore electives that would apply to what they want to do in school.

Greg Moore, the South Harrison High principal who drove up from Harrison County for the meeting, said the bare minimum is just that.

Most high schoolers, he said, would want to to take the easy way out.

“That’s just human nature,” he said.

Board member Frank Vitale said no decision will be made on any of the proposed changes until Dec. 11, when public comments are closed.
