High-school teachers in Texas are asking state officials to reconsider a proposal to reduce the number of social studies credits required to graduate from four to three. The change is included in a plan to revamp the state's high-school graduation requirements -- moving away from the "four-by-four" plan requiring four classes each of English, math, science and social studies, in addition to other courses, in favor of offering more flexibility for students.
