High school is easy? 

Are we surprised?

"High school graduation tests are not "overly demanding" and measure only a small part of the skills considered essential by colleges and employers, according to a study of the exams in six states that was released Wednesday."

And the horrible fallacy of standardized testing actually holding people accountable for their jobs and their educations has actually done little to better our kids' prospects. Instead of really revamping how we treat education as a society including the length of days, dates, and assessment methods, we play pussyfoot with bandaids and big sticks.
