Yes let's give the test again to bring the scores up. This isn't right. Who does this help, the teacher who didn't do her job all year or the kid that didn't bother to study???? If you took the test in June you shouldn't be able to retake it.

The test is automatically given again every summer. It isn't being given again because the teacher didnt do their job. The test is given 3x a year.

I agree however kids who took the exam yet did not like the grade they received get to take it again. The students said three separate items were never taught so they attended several weeks of review taught going by the test. The highest grade was in the 70s let's see how a second try goes.

I don't know where your information comes from but the highest grade was not in he 70s. Perhaps you are talking about a different school. New York State has given students the option of retaking the regents for more then 20 years if they are unhappy with their grade. If they choose to take it then good for them. How is this the fault of the teacher? The majority of the students retaking the test did it because they wanted to try to get a better grade...not because they failed.

Apparently, the taxpayers get to pay for the administration of all the tests that students take over and over. Because? Their teacher failed them? They failed themselves? Special education failed them?

Doesn't matter. This "option" is a farce and an expense that no taxpayers needs.
