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.
