Re: Another one bites the dust...

What's the status on these old tests?

The new tests replace the Maryland functional exams, staples since the late
1970s. Several board members noted yesterday that those tests were greeted
with predictions that thousands would fail and drop out.

Eventually, only a handful of students failed the tests, and the vast
majority of students passed without breaking a sweat - even before entering
high school.
