I think the kids need to be tested to make sure they deserve to graduate, looks like you should have taken the test then you would know how to spell parent.

They can't spell parent or graduation. Use your spell checker retard. I'm not a supporter of the equivalency tests, but after the way this thread started maybe I'll rethink my stand on the subject

When I saw this I knew Immediately someone would comment on the spelling..I believe its just someone posting from their phone and hit the wrong key so don't be an ass! As far as this test goes I feel it should be given to all if its to be given. Some kids do not have to pass this to graduate! That is not fair!

I think the whole thing needs to be looked at. Why does it take MORE of an education to pass a GED than to get a High School diploma? You can get a high school diploma being 1st/2nd grade educated, to pass the GED you have to be at least 9.5 educated (how you get half a grade I don't know lol).

I personally know several people through out the county with High school diplomas who cannot read, write, do basic math, etc. That should not be allowed. If you cannot do ALL of the above you should not be able to graduate high school.

Some will not like this. However I don't think those with LD issues should just be allowed to get a diploma either. Either you're high school educated, or you're not. When you're not you have not earned a diploma and should not receive one.

I am not high school educated, and it drives me crazy to see people with less of an education than I have having a high school diploma they have not earned.

IMO this is why the high school diploma is no longer enough. This is why so many POS jobs are requiring higher education. ANYONE can GET a high school diploma, you have to EARN college credits.

I'm not really for or against graduation tests in general. What I'm against is people who don't have to take the test and getting the reward. I do feel there should be a test to prove you are as educated as you claim you are, but the test is useless if not everyone is doing it.

As of this year the freshman class will no longer have the graduation test. They are looking for a replacement tes possibly not replacing it at all. They stated this at orientation this year.
