3 out of 5 parts of the high school graduation exam in order to graduate. Anyone else heard this?
Since he moved in from Georgia then yea he will have 2 to graduate

No worries the test is much easier than an sat, act, or any other standardized test that are out there.
Having taken these exact exams a couple years ago, they are insanely easy. Most kids in middle school could pass them. Foster is either not trying, or extremely unintelligent.
Edit: And anyone saying that Auburn High School is going to try to screw him over is clueless. It's a state wide standardized test which is mailed into a testing facility and graded. Do you guys think that the teachers or someone is going to change his answers once he turns in his test?

God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
As an English teacher, it's all that you can do almost. You try but No Child Left Behind has ruined education. Many people don't know this but it's basically impossible to fail a kid now. Kids know this so they put forth minimal effort. Therefore there is no accountability to do work. Because of this teachers are now predicated to being baby sitters rather than teachers. Truth. I teach all out every day but I have no power to make a kid want to learn and now the threat of failing can't motivate students either.
If he has an acceptable score on his ACT, which it seems y'all are saying he does, passing the exit exams is a foregone conclusion.

I hear ya. And god bless you guys by the way. My granddad taught for 35 years. He taught until the end of his life, 2 years ago. He has never been more angry and frustrated in the education system than in the later stages if his career. You guys are totally handcuffed by the system.
Ummm. I know for a fact that there are high schools that allow certain high profile athletes to take the test in a private room with their personal academic tutor sitting next to them to "help".
I am sure RF would have received some "help" had he gone to the Barn that now he might find hard to come by.
Why wouldn't he have passed them earlier in the year?
I appreciate it. It's definitely frustrating and why the teaching profession has such a high drop out rate these days. The only reason I do it is because the one kid that makes it against the odds is worth it over the hundreds of disappointments you see every year.
