Lawmakers have major concerns about new school curriculum

Top lawmakers are complaining that sweeping new high school curriculum and standardized testing rules are too complicated even for those who approved them to understand. 
And they note that, if that's the case, just imagine how tough they will be to follow for students, parents and school administrators.
 The House Public Education Committee discussed implementation on Wednesday of a much-watched new law scrapping the rule that most students take algebra II. It's designed to create more flexibility for vocational training. 
The law also cut the number of high school standardized tests from a nation-high 15 to five. But some committee members complained that the new curriculum is heavy.
