Kendra Dawn: What about the students that have test anxiety that do not score well on test? Let’s cut out all this testing and go by the hard work that these students put in for 4 years and just because they don’t pass a state test all that hard work is for nothing.

David Bodary: It seems this moves toward ensuring high school graduates are college or career ready. I think that’s an improvement over the OGT.
