OKLAHOMA CITY - Local school boards should hear appeals from students who didn't receive high school diplomas because they failed to pass a required end-of-instruction test, a Tulsa-area public school superintendent suggested to a legislative panel conducting an interim study Tuesday.
Students also weighed in, saying the required tests are not doing what they were intended to do.
A survey conducted by Watonga High School's leadership class indicated that two out of three seniors didn't try as hard on other tests after they passed the mandatory four end-of-instruction - or EOI - tests.
"Passing tests is now a mandate rather than learning for pleasure," said student Desiree Richey.
