We move to add a mandatory life skills course to the Bellingham Public Schools required curriculum.

Currently, a large majority of required credits are sorted into six subjects: English, Math, Social Studies, Science, World Language, and Arts. In recent years, requirements for most of these subjects have increased, while Career and Technical Education Credits and Health have remained the same. We are against this exclusive focus on college preparation. Schools have the obligation to teach their students skills that will prepare them for their everyday lives, like budgeting and professionalism. Please help us send a message to the District by signing this petition to create a class that teaches several skills to prepare our youth for their future. child-world-peace.jpg(Doctor Beau)
