New Hampshire's definition of an adequate education would be tweaked and expanded under a bill that recently passed the state Senate.

The changes include adding personal finance literacy to the list of core domains listed in state law and providing more specifics for other domains.

For example, the law would specify biology, physical science and earth science instead of just "science," "social studies" would be replaced with "civics and government, economics, geography and history" and "wellness" would be added to the core domain of health.

The bill now goes back to the House, which will be asked to concur with changes made by the Senate.
