I Didn't Even Know There Was An Exemption Policy

Ours is similar, with these things also: no student is exempt in the fall semester (for any class), and cannot be exempt from a one semester class (fall or spring).

McDonald's has a "sauce policy" on chicken nugget orders too.

Decatur is dumb. The inmates run that place.

From personal experience, that is a bad policy.

Who is most likely to receive exemptions for finals? Kids with higher-than-average grades.

Who is most likely to go to college, where they will have to take exams? Kids with higher-than-average grades.

In high school I rarely had to take final exams. When I got to college, I didn't know how to study for exams. I think it really puts college-bound kids at a disadvantage.

In MY day(61 years old), there wasn't any such thing as an exemption. Everybody took all tests, no matter what!

Of course, we walked three miles to school each day, it snowed every day, and it was uphill in both directions. ;-)

Been that way for at least 20 years.
