A California school district is considering reducing the number of credits needed to graduate to 210 from 240 -- equal to three years of electives. The proposal stems from data showing that about one-third of students fail at least one class during high school. Officials say eliminating the electives would allow students to make up courses they have failed during the school day, rather than on Saturdays or during summer school.
