MADISON (WKOW) -- Governor Scott Walker is scheduled to sign a bill Wednesday that would increase the number of science and math credits required for high school graduation.

The bill would increase the number of credits from two to three for both math and science. A computer science class could count as a math credit and an agricultural sciences course could count as a science credit.

The measure also would give schools flexibility to award math and science credits to students who are in career and technical education programs.

The proposal comes as the state's school districts are implementing more rigorous academic requirements and it would also bring Wisconsin more in line with neighboring states.
