Follow The Republic:

Columbus East Guidance Director Doug Moore has seen evidence of that from class-scheduling sessions.

But measures are in place to change students' mindsets. High-level courses are being added to high school degree requirements, and Central Middle School Principal Randy Gratz has a plan to prepare his students earlier for more rigorous learning.

Please read Tuesday's edition of The Republic for more details.
