This week we want to know if you think the reduction in high school graduation requirements is good for Maine’s students or bad for them. Should schools change their credit requirements to help struggling seniors graduate? 

Schools in Lewiston, Auburn, and the RSU 56 school district in Oxford County have reduced graduation requirements to help more seniors graduate amid hybrid learning difficulties and high failure rates. Should more schools do this? Should schools be doing this at all? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
