Senator Turner Working On Ag Science Bill

State Senator Doris Turner has been keeping busy including putting together a plan to count agricultural science towards the three years required for science to get admission into public universities in Illinois. Currently, the minimum requirements to gain admission to state universities includes at least 15 units of high school coursework in English, social studies, math, science, and electives in a foreign language, music, vocational education, or art. 


While some colleges accept agricultural science as a science course, not all do. This law would make all colleges accept agricultural science as it is an important part of Illinois. Senator Turner says that she knows how important Ag science is to Illinois and that students can feel confident and passionate about their choice when selecting a science class. It also helps high school students get interested in agricultural science before entering a state university.
