Congratulations to those

Congratulations to those recieving a diploma, the rest should not be able to walk, it takes away from those who have earned theirs. CCBOE and RCBOE do not have the backbone to stand up to political correctness and do what is right. Remember when ONLY graduates were able to graduate. Graduating meant recieving a diploma not thanks for showing up for 12 or 14 years and hears your certificate of attendance. The whole thing just reeks of spinelessness.

Well, a certificate means

Well, a certificate means that the student has completed all of the coursework necessary for graduation, except for passing one or more graduation tests. Thirty years ago when I graduated, there was no such thing as a graduation test. So, in my book, all things being equal, it is not a crime to let them march. It's devastating enough to discover that 2 points on a graduation test is preventing them from receiving a diploma. As the graduation committee in my school was pulling the diplomas of those students that didn't pass their test, my heart went out to many of them because I know how hard they worked in the classroom. But many of them are not particularly good at taking standardized tests. So, please, have a heart.

"Finis" to "excuse-based" public education

C(')est la vie,

The biggest reason folks score poorly on standardized tests is that such folks don't know the test content as well as those who score more highly.

And, as for test anxiety, I'd be anxious, too, if I hadn't studied hard enough to have learned the content to be assessed.
