Lawmakers React to Graduation Rate News

"Some New Mexico lawmakers say they are “thrilled” with news that the state’s four-year high school graduation [rate] increased more than ten percent last year."

"Longtime House Education Committee member Rep. Mimi Stewart, D-Albuquerque, told NMiF
Friday that the results are the culmination of a decade’s worth of work."

NM grad rate jumps after students get break from exam

"The New Mexico high school class lauded last week for increased graduation rates was not required to take a high stakes exit exam."

"The Albuquerque Journal reports that a bill passed and signed in spring 2011 gave students a one-year reprieve from a difficult exit test."

Everything is a lie. Not even Rep. Mimi Stewart spoiled the secret about there being no exit exam this year.
Nobody said a word ... they all kept the secret ... all the media, all the politicians, and the governor too.
