Close the Budget Gap--Abolish High School Exit Exam (and NCLB and CCS)

Stephen Krashin may not be able to close the entire $28 billion California budget deficit, but his suggestion that we do away with CAHSEE is an
excellent start. You can read his complete editorial to SF Examiner by clicking on the link. I’ve included an excerpt below:
“Here’s how we can save another half-billion: Eliminate the high school exit examination. Analyst Jo Ann Behm has estimated that the combined state
and local costs of California’s test exceed $500 million per year.The
most recent review of research on exit exams, done by researchers at the
University of Texas, concluded that high school exit exams do not lead
to more college attendance, increased student learning or higher
employment. In fact, researchers have yet to discover any benefits of
having a high school exit exam.”
