Exit tests helps ensure school
Isn't it wonderful that California is demonstrating the success of our state's generous education programs by publishing the results obtained by each school ("On-again, off-again exit exam is back on," May 25).
It is highly beneficial to insist that those students prove their individual accomplishments by passing tests to verify their qualifications as graduates. Our hope is that the standards are raised so California citizens have a growing knowledge achievement base. More industry and jobs will be attracted to our state if we have higher skill levels by our workforce. I hope that those school attendees who failed the exit exams take advantage of continuing their schooling so they earn their certificates, regardless of the many handicaps that they may have suffered while learning the required levels of competency.
