Number 2 Pencil: The insider’s word on education in California

March 8, 2005

Kimberly Swygert quotes Daniel Weintraub on exit exams:

The exam’s opponents fear the stigma that will be attached to any student who, failing the test, leaves school without a diploma. Maybe they should worry as much about the prospects for students who for far too long have been leaving high schools with a diploma but without the basic math and English skills they need to survive in society.

Agreed.
