Another Way To Save District Money

From Stephen Krashen's newsletter:

"Recent research done by scholars at Indiana University, UC Davis and the University of Minnesota has shown that in general state high school exit exams do not lead to higher employment, or higher earnings by graduates, nor does the presence of high school exit exams result in improved academic achievement.

In fact, researchers have yet to discover any clear evidence that High School Exit Exams benefit anyone except the companies that make and sell them.
