Governor Peter Shumlin is calling for tuition breaks for in-state students at the University of Vermont and at state colleges and higher high school math requirements. Shumlin is devoting his second inaugural address almost entirely to education, saying the state needs to do a better job of preparing people for the growing number of technical jobs in Vermont’s economy. The Democratic governor says that only 47 percent of Vermont high schools require students to take algebra to graduate and that only 31 percent require geometry. He wants to require that all students take algebra in ninth grade and geometry in 10th grade.
