S policies for
students with AIDS
March 7, 1986 - Headed by the
University AIDS task force, the Uni-
versity has approved new guidelines
regarding the treatment of students
with AIDS. The new guidelines,
taken from the recommendations of
the American College Health Asso-
ciation, suggest that students with
AIDS should be allowed to attend
classes and that the University com-
munity should be educated about the
ACHA's guidelines are "based on the

About 40 percent
of high school juniors
and seniors take
LANSING (AP) - Gov. Jennifer Gra-
nholm said yesterday that she'll consider
the needs of career education students in
her push for tougher curriculum require-
Around 40 percent of high school
juniors and seniors in Michigan are
enrolled in classes at career centers and
similar schools, the governor said.
Those students take regular classes at
their high schools but also spend parts
of their days at career centers getting
a combination of applied academics
and specific occupational skill train-
ing for jobs ranging from hospitality
services to computer-assisted drafting,
construction, computer programming,
health care, marketing, interior design,
cosmetology and welding.
Yesterday, Granholm tried to address
concerns that her push for 18 hours of
required math, science, English, social
studies and foreign language will not
hurt students who want to continue tak-
ing career education classes. Michigan
now requires only a civics class.
"It is our full intent that the content
that is being taught in high school
also be taught through the career and
tech education centers," the gover-
nor said during a news conference at
Eastern High School.
Chuck Wilbur, a Granholm adviser,
said after the news conference that both
kinds of classes can count toward the
"It's just a question of how the final
requirements are worded," he said.
"She's not going to let CTE (career
technical education) get crowded out
of the schedule."
Michigan Association of School
Administrators spokeswoman Linda
Wacyk said she's glad the governor is lis-
tening to educators' concerns about the
expanded curriculum requirements.
"In a recent survey that we did, about
60 percent of our members expressed
some concern that the guidelines as pro-
posed would tend to dissuade students
from pursuing career and technical edu-
cation, because it would be perceived as
too difficult to get it all in," Wacyk said.
The State Board of Education sup-
ports giving schools some flexibility on
what counts as the required core classes,
which should help, she said. But she
wants lawmakers and the governor to
move slowly and keep the career educa-
tion students in mind.
"We want to proceed thoughtfully. It is
a valuable piece of the education pie, and
we want to make sure we make room for
those kids," Wacyk said.
