  1. i personally know this school district graduates students that DID NOT complete the requirements for graduation. A senior flunked both senior English and Reading, was removed from class two weeks before graduation and placed in a computer class to get those two credits… They gave her the answers and she was able to ‘pass’ these classes in TWO days…multiply this…. This is a look good on paper school district. DIG DEEPER News organizations if you want to see the truth!
