PHOENIX – The state of Arizona has the 6th highest teen unemployment rate in the nation – 28.7 percent. A state senator is now working to change that.
Senator Kimberly Yee is sponsoring SB 1449 — which will require high schools students to be proficient in more than math, science, writing, and reading when they graduate.
If it becomes law, SB 1449 will require students to be proficient in finance. The bill passed the Senate Education Committee unanimously earlier this week.
