LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan lawmakers are considering approving a certification for high school students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

MLive.com reports (https://bit.ly/1wgjvFl ) new legislation outlines the requirements for a possible certification on high school diplomas, including six credits of math and six credits of science.

Republican state Sen. John Proos of St. Joseph introduced the bills and says the certifications would help students succeed in competitive job markets.

Michigan STEM Partnership Board of Directors chairman Paul Agosta says state officials need to ensure students can apply practical learning to college study or the work place.

Republican state Rep. Amanda Price of Park Township plans to introduce matching bills in the House. She says certifications would send the message to employers that science and math education is a primary focus in Michigan.
