New Diploma Proposed for Disabled Students

A local legislator has filed an education bill aimed to correct what he feels is inequality in the education system. State Sen. Dennis Parrett, D-Elizabethtown, filed legislation that gives students with disabilities the opportunity to receive an alternative high school diploma instead of a certificate of completion they currently receive. The issue came to his attention after learning his own daughter won’t receive a diploma upon her completing high school.
