I am very concerned and very very upset that this is happening. I have two children that are under Special Ed. My oldest had busted her rump to finish high school. She has had problems since before she started school and has come a long way, but now is depressed, because she was told she couldn't get her diploma. She can't have her diploma because she didn't pass her TAKS test. She has finished all that was required of her and then some. It is not fair. My youngest son has also struggled and now upset because he was told he may not be able to move to the fourth grade because he didn't pass the TAKS. I wonder if the law makers realize how much stress and worry they are putting on these children. School is hard enough for these children and in my opinion, the law makers are going to be responsible for a lot of children to be depressed and to skip and or quit school. They give out children modifications all year and then say, "Here take this test, oh and by the way it is not modified". My children stressed and cried before they even took it. I am so disappointed in the educational law makers. No wonder a lot of parents are starting to homeschool their children.

Yeaa I,am getting very concerned about these whinning topics that pop up on the forums before my eyes. And yes I have busted my rump myself trying to keep up with these silly topics that appear. I,am sorry for the problem that you may be having but don,t you people have anything good to post are any good news to post? And don,t blame law maker,s for everyone goofball.
Then why reply Richard Cranium,

Why don't you Google a 3rd grad TAKS test, take the sample test and see if you can pass. I bet you can't. Leave this concerned ADULT parent alone. She has ADULT concerns that she should be able to talk about without your harassment. Why don't you go visit the WWF forum or something more your speed.

Yes, and it takes a real man to berate her. Especially someone with no kids and no comprehension of what you are replying to. If they had the TAKS test when you were in school you would probably still be in the 2nd gtade.
