Guam - Senator Sam Mabini has introduced Bill 239 also known as the "Care Act"- or the College and Career Readiness Act. The measure aims to ensure all students graduating from high school - whether they are on a college bound track or a vocational track- are prepared for success after their senior year.

Currently on Guam students in the career academic path are required to earn less math, social science, and social studies credits than those in the college preparation path. Mabini - who holds a doctoral degree in work and human resource education from the University of Minnesota - thinks that should change. "The national agenda research is showing there should not be a differentiation between the two whether you are going to college or going to culinary arts or automotive you need four years of math you need for years of English," she said.

If the bill becomes law the District Boards of Education would be required to complete a strategic plan on integrated curriculum. By June 2012 to be implemented in the 2012-2013 academic school year.
