I’m giving everyone involved in this law suit a failing grade.

February 8th, 2006

The state of California has a new law that says if you don’t pass an exit exam at the end of high school…

…you don’t get a diploma.

Now some students are buy viagra clinic 1, diagnosis 3009970.story?coll=la-story-footer&track=morenews”>suing the state of California

…because they think it’s silly to use a test to determine how well people do in school.

At first, click I was really upset about this.

But then I realized…these kids are learning the most important lesson about living in America…

…when you want something you don’t deserve, you go to court.

    This is pathetic.

    First, my high school was thinking about implementing this type of test. I’ve seen it. An eight grader could pass it. If these kids couldn’t pass it, which I’m assuming they couldn’t, they don’t deserve a diploma, even one with a decreased value like our public schools are good for.

    Second, thank the left for the welfare mentality they have successfully implanted in our children.

    It’s actually worse than you think, Jenna.

    The test is given to Seniors.

    It tests 10th grade English. And 9th grade math.

    You only need 60% right on both parts to pass.

    The real issue is that the Spanish speaking kids aren’t passing the English section.

    But they don’t think they should have to be able to read and write English to get a diploma from an American school.

    Actually, its worse than YOU think. The program Wisconsin is considering implementing would have the test be administered to sophomores. Then, if you don’t pass that time, with 60%, of course, you take it again as a Junior. Then, if you don’t pass that time, you take it again as a Senior.

    Great, huh.
