Washington state officials are proposing to relax the state’s mathematics requirement for a high school diploma for students in the 2008, 2009, and 2010 graduating classes. Students would be able to meet the requirement either by passing the 10th grade math portion of the Washington Assessment of Student Learning or by taking and passing rigorous math coursework, under the plan announced last week by Gov. Christine Gregoire, a Democrat, and Superintendent of Public Instruction Terry Bergeson.
