Your 2 Cents: High School Diploma Controversy

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

A couple thousand Oklahoma High School seniors may not get their diplomas because they didn't pass the new End of Instruction Exams.

I support the tests as proof that our students are learning what they're supposed to learn in high school.

Here's what you had to say.

Mandy first: "I do believe in holding students accountable, but Oklahoma gives way too many tests."

Another viewer says: "This is the first time I have agreed with your 2 cents in quite some time."

J writes: "How about making it time that teachers prove they are 'teaching'?"

Amanda says: "Just because you pass a test or don't pass a test doesn't really mean anything!"

Another viewer writes: "..not only should kids be responsible for proving that they can learn even with horrible teachers, the parents should be held accountable.

Plegal writes: "I have never been a fan of standardized testing.

It is not indicative of how a person will or will not perform/succeed.."

Finally K asks: "Kelly-have you seen or taken any of these tests? I have.

Many adults who graduated (in your age group) would not pass them-let alone the people who passed this law."
