The New York Post reports this tale….
The high school ‘graduate’ with a diagnosed learning disability who has 2nd grade reading skills, got a high school diploma. He ‘passed’ the tests for graduation.
How did he do that? Well, on the fifth try, someone read the reading test to him (though testing rules did not allow it) so he ‘passed.’
Note that in some states, including Massachusetts, reading tests CAN be read to students!
Surely a case of testing and standards and accommodations gone awry…
