We Failed The Test To Get Out Of High School. The Only Course Of Action Available To You Is Obvious. You Must Give Us Our Diplomas.

The San Francisco Board of Education voted unanimously to give diplomas to 107 high school students who have not met all their graduation requirements — a move that goes against state law.

The California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) is offered to students beginning sophomore year. There are several opportunities to take it, but some students struggled to pass and had to retake it over & over & still did not pass.  

Recently, faculty and students from San Francisco International High School showed up at the city’s school board meeting accompanied by their Principal, pleading for help. Their plead was simple... “We need another opportunity to take the CAHSEE or we need a diploma,” said the Principal.

On behalf of his fellow Pleading Students their Leader has issued a statement to the media concerning their situation...

this aint fareit iz as plane as the noos on yo fac and as elementrie as 2+2 beein 5 that our wrights have ben vialatted

(It appears that California’s education system is so bad that it cannot even teach its students how to use Spell & Grammar Check.)

When the Pleading Student Leader was asked about the lack of capitalization, punctuation, spacing, incorrect spelling & inaccurate arithmetic in his statement he responded... All that kind of stuff is no longer necessary. Modern students in America believe only necessary is necessary.

Would I kid u?


Lagniappe: I saw an interesting link at the bottom of the article that gave me the information I researched to write this blog posting. It was entitled...

“In California Thousands of Teachers Missing Needed Credentials”

I said to myself, “Ah ha, self, this is the problem”. But, when I clicked on the link, I was taken to...

“Page Not Found...404 Error...We’re sorry, but you have reached a page that doesn’t exist.”

Their thinking must be that, by not allowing us to read about the problem, the problem will go away...Or will it?
