Back to school changes 2015

I don’t know about you, but I am very excited about back to school season. It’s time to buy new clothes, backpacks, lunch boxes and more. Back to school season also have brought us some unexpected changes in 2015.

Are these changes good or bad? You will make the decision on your own. Here is the most interesting changes in my opinion: 

Connecticut will replace the existing statewide high school test with the SAT. Connecticut announced that every 11th grade student in the state’s public schools would take the SAT college admissions tests beginning in the 2015-16 school year. I believe Connecticut has an additional goal: encouraging more students to apply for college.

San Francisco high school students now can take a new LGBT course in the 2015-16 school year. This course will focus on the gay rights movement, historic events such as the legalization of same-sex marriage, and the AIDS crisis.

In Virginia high schools each student now has a spot for charging his or her laptop, which is considered to be more important than having lockers. For example, hundreds of lockers were replaced with benches and laptop charging stations at the Albemarle High School.

A lot of different changes are waiting for you in the new school year. New courses, projects, teachers. In order to be sure that you are ready for them hire qualified tutors.

If some interesting changes have happened in your school as well you can share them with us on a comments bellow.
