No More Graduation Test

ATLANTA (WAOK) Beginning next fall Georgia high school students will no longer have to take a portion of the graduation test.  Last Wednesday the state Board of Education voted to nix the test that has been around since 1995.  As a result, students will be required to pass eight mandatory classes in order to graduate from high school. Students will also be required to score higher on the End of Course Test (EOCT) in the required eight courses. Instead of counting the current 15% of the students final grade, the EOCT will count 20%.  All students will still be required to take the Georgia high school writing test.
