Md. Approves Alternative to Tests for Graduation

More liberal stupidity…

From WaPo:

A divided Maryland State Board of Education approved a plan Wednesday that would allow students struggling to pass a set of state tests required to earn a high school diploma to complete projects as an alternative.

After rejecting a motion to delay the year the tests go into effect, the board voted 8 to 4 to approve the “bridge plan” proposed by Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick. Under the plan, students who have twice failed one or more of the High School Assessments in algebra, English, government and biology would be able to complete projects in those subjects as a substitute for passing.

That is great, if you can’t pass the test, we will give you a “project” to complete and give you a diploma. Oh, yeah and buy the way, You don’t have to pass each test to graduate high school, you just have an overall minimum passing score…
