New graduation requirements in future for high school students

In a few years, New Jersey high school students will have to pass the controversial PARCC test to graduate.



Students will also have to pass algebra 1 and 10th-grade English tests.



The new requirement goes into effect for the class of 2021.



Last year's results show that only 41 percent passed algebra.



Forty-four percent passed the English requirement.
