Half of the teachers in sccs can not do their job, and they are trying to shorten the time for the kids to get to class, making it impossable not to be late, plus they spend more money on un-necesary security then they do on acedemics.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Regents Examinations to test high school students in English, math, global history and geography, US history and government, living environment, chemistry, Earth science and physics. Students must take at least five Regents Exams in order to graduate. Scores of 65 and above are passing; scores of 55 and above earn credit toward a local diploma (with the approval of the local board of education). The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
