Should We Get Rid of Senior Year?

It’s the year high school students wait for – football games, senior prom, and graduating with friends. Utah Sen. Chris Buttars originally proposed to cut the twelfth grade entirely, but has since toned down the idea, suggesting that senior year be optional for students who complete their required credits early. The estimated move could save up to $60 million dollars.

So our question to you this morning is: Should we get rid of senior year? Why or why not?

Senator Buttars and Utah’s Commissioner of Higher Education join us at 10am ET on CNN Newsroom, plus we’ll read some of your responses later that hour.
