    Brother Radical Faith,

    Thanks for sharing this information. I was aware of some of the general passages of the act and have thought the whole business was yet another smokescreen to block necessary changes and funding to TRULY revolutionize the school system in this country. Before now, I'd never heard of this part but will indeed be researching its validity.

    As a high school student in California, there is a test that we must take called the California High School Exit Exam that every student must take in order to graduate. You are given the opportuniy to complete it throughout all four years and there are summer school classes and otherwise that prepare those that need the extra help. I'm not not aware of the consequences if for some reason students don't pass, but this test began with my class (2006) and about 10% of California seniors have not yet passed this test.
