Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code. Beginning with the 2018-2019 school year, requires every public high school to include in its curriculum instruction in the free enterprise system through a course lasting at least one semester, which each student entering the 9th grade in the 2018-2019 school year or a subsequent school year must successfully complete as a prerequisite to receiving a high school diploma. Requires the State Board of Education to adopt free enterprise content standards and develop the curriculum, carry out appropriate professional development training for teachers of the course, and submit a report to the General Assembly on course implementation. Sets forth minimum areas of instruction to be included in the course.
