Following up an earlier thread:

Following up an earlier thread: NY's education commissioner says local school districts can toss out the results of last week's Math Regents exam and use classwork to determine eligibility for graduation. There seems to be a logical flaw here: if the point of state-wide testing is to ensure that everyone gets an education of similar quality, how can you ensure this if you let everyone by on the basis of their classwork? Couldn't they administer another test? Couldn't they evaluate what an even lower "adjusted" passing grade on the test might be? (The passing grade on the test is already a 55.) At least they're making underclassmen take it again before they graduate.
