My 10th grader took the high school exit exam. When i was growing up they didnt have these... and I was surprised to find out they take them SO early. Someone told me it was in case they failed they would have plenty of time to try again.
But on the other hand that means that if you pass you know all you need to know to qualify for a high school diploma in 10th grade!
Our daughter has always had a difficult time in math. She has gotten As in EVERY class but math & science... she has gotten straight Cs in those classes... even with year round tutors. Yet her scores on the exit exam were VERY high.
So what kind of idiots are we turning out that she can PASS an exit exam in 10th grade AND get such high scores when she got Cs in the classes. This scares the hell out of me that we require SO little of our high school students. And what the heck is wrong with the kids who are not passing these tests??? How horribly have we failed THOSE kids????Answer Question
