This is part of an email I got today from the High School
The California High School Exit Exam will take place next week on Tuesday, February 7th and Wednesday, February 8th. This test administration is for all 10th grade students.
This is an important test for all of our students because it is a requirement for graduation from public high schools in the state of California. The test will gauge student achievement in two subject areas: English Language Arts and Mathematics.
So my thought is this. If my daughter passes this ( and she will, I have no doubt) and finishes all her classes this year with flying colors ( she will) why can’t she just graduate now? If all they require is the knowledge of a 10th grader to graduate then what’s the point of the next 2 years? Sure she’ll want those next two years of Japanese. She likes band. But really trig/pre-calc? I took that and I’m wondering when I used it since high school. More freaking US History..( this would be the third time in her schooling if you count 5th and 7th grades) Sometimes I think the kids are wasting their time relearning stuff.
