Finally some sanity about high school GPAs

I always thought it was a little screwy that the grade I got in a high school typing class counted as much as my grade in precalculus. Looks like I wasn't the only one with this idea. Texas is apparently going to fold course difficulty into the calculation of high school GPAs. The move is quite controversial judging by the comments posted for this item in the Chronicle of Higher Education.
