Why Superintendents Are So Concerned
On November 15, more than 300 Ohio public school superintendents and other local educational leaders rallied on the Statehouse steps in Columbus to share their concern that a large number of students are in jeopardy of not graduating next school year because of graduation requirements tied to newly mandated high stakes tests. Students previously had to pass the Ohio Graduation Tests but now must take seven more demanding end-of-course exams to earn points toward a total needed for graduation or achieve an alternative which includes getting a job credential or a remediation-free score on a college entrance exam. Coverage of the rally by the Dayton Daily News does a good job of explaining why many superintendents are so concerned.
