States create alternate exits

States are creating alternate pathways to graduation for students who can’t pass high school exit exams, reports the Center on Education Policy. Most offer alternatives for disabled students; some also exempt students who aren’t fluent in English. Pass rates have improved in most states. Many more states are using their exit exams to meet NCLB’s high school testing requirements.

    So…what if anything have these students learned? How many cannot learn to the level needed and should have been exempted originally but couldn’t be because of the NCLB formula?
