Lubbock-Cooper School Board to consider Algebra II curriculum

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Algebra II is on the agenda for Lubbock-Cooper's school board meeting on Thursday night.

Back in January, the State Board of Education voted to allow school districts to decide whether Algebra II should remain a requirement for high school students.

The board will decide on that Thursday night.

DeAnn Drake, the Director of Curriculum for Lubbock-Cooper, says her goal is to make sure that students are prepared for any career path they choose in life.

"The skills that are taught in Algebra II, the critical thinking, the problem solving - those skills are going to be used throughout life, regardless of what that child decided to do with their career or their vocation," Drake said.

Thursday night's meeting will be held at Laura Bush Middle School, at 7 p.m.
