Non-Reading Students now graduate from High School

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

The Oregon State Board of Education decided to remove the requirement to show proof of mastery in reading, writing, and math through a standardized test in order to graduate from high school.

The Oregon State Board last week voted unanimously to extend a pause on the requirement for 11th-grade students to demonstrate competency in essential skills reading, writing, and math through either a standardized test or a portfolio of work on top of regular coursework.

Standardized tests will still be issued; however, the Board voted to remove the standardized test as a factor in determining whether students receive their diplomas. Also, students who fail to demonstrate proficiency in the essential skills will not be required to make up for it in their senior year.
