Special education programs identify possible therapies and establish individual instructional goals for students. But when many of those students finish high school, they don’t graduate with a diploma, but a certificate of completion.
“But if you choose that non-academic route, your child when they graduate high school, they do not get a diploma. They get a certificate,” says Democratic Senator Dennis Parrett of Elizabethtown.
“If your child is a senior at Bryan Station High School, and they completed this curriculum that was set out before them, then I believe that they deserve a diploma. It can say alternative diploma. I’m fine with that, but they deserve a diploma. That’s all this is about.”
