Guam Speaker on Service Learning

Guam- Speaker Judi Won Pat has introduced three new measures before the next session occurs at the end of the month.

Among the three is Bill 154, which requires high school students to complete 75 hours of "service learning" before they can graduate. Won Pat says it was optional for students to perform community service tasks in the past, such as tutoring, but wants to make it a requirement to teach them more valuable lessons outside of the classroom.

The other two bills Won Pat has also introduced includes one that amends the hiring and training of substitute teachers, and another that calls for the extension of the adoption of textbooks. To view all of the speaker's new bills, log on to www.guamlegislature.com
