    Here in Texas we have standardized tests and if they don’t pass, they don’t graduate or get promoted. This year there was a good number of seniors in Dallas that didn’t pass and couldn’t graduate. So of course there was a lot complaining about feeling like 12 years had been wasted.
    Not once did anyone bring up who’s fault that was, just that we were supposed to feel bad for them and let them graduate.
    They didn’t.

    There is no point in allowing them to go further if they haven’t mastered what came before. They are being set up for failure so they’ll drop out of school and no longer be a bother to the system.
    Most colleges are now re-running high school during the freshman year to get student up to speed for college.
