Why has the media not gotten involved? I was just
wondering the same thing. Perhaps they are not aware
of the problem. I would venture to bet that if the
media was involved, the state would be quick to
respond. This may be what needs to be done. They are
not listening to us. And with such low passing rates
across the state, the state must realize that
something went wrong. It is not fair that seniors
cannot graduate based on an exam that some of our top
ninth grade accelerated students could not pass.
