Big Change at the NJ DOEMay 25, 2010
Princeton High School in Mercer County is bemoaning the fact in today’s Trenton Times that the new Alternative High School Assessment has resulted in a “higher than usual” number of students in “graduation limbo.” In fact, 4 seniors our of a class of about 340, about 1.2%, are waiting to find out if they passed the test, given to students who fail the standard high school exam three times.
Thirteen miles away at Trenton High School, also in Mercer County, 200 seniors out a total class of 370, or 54%, have yet to pass either the HSPA or the AHSA. Interdistrict School Choice, anyone?
