Less than 11 percent of California’s high school seniors have failed the exit exam once again. Last year, when the exit exam wasn’t a graduation requirement, 13 percent of seniors didn’t complete the courses needed to graduate. It’s likely that most students who can’t pass the exam, which requires no more than seventh through 10th grade skills, wouldn’t have graduated anyhow.
