Let ARE kids walk?
Fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree I guess.Â
It’s all about the TAKS test.Â Â If graduating seniors don’tÂ pass it,Â some schools don’t allow them to walk for graduation.
Mineral Wells would be one of those!
The TAKS being used as a criteria for graduation is wrong, in my opinion. As a pretest, or a diagnostic tool, to be used to aid in preparation for that which is taught, it might be helpful. But, when a person has completed 12 years of public schooll and has maintained a passing grade average and has earned the required number of credits, he should be awarded his diploma.
Now………if schools have in their policy that passing the TAKS is a prerequisite for graduation, then the students who fail it do not graduate! Very simple! If a policy is important enough to make, then it is important enough to enforce.
Seems to me some educating of parents as to the policies of the school are in order.
Oh my. I’m so embarrassed for that mom.
