    This would make more sense in Mississippi.

    :lol: I'd rep you if I could.

    The only thing this does is get rid of 12th grade in Utah and not fix any sort of budgeting problems. I mean what happens next time around? 11th grade goes next? :eusa_eh:

    Just no fiscal responsibility at all.

    Since remedial courses have become all the rage for college froshies, what's the harm in getting them there a year sooner? :lol:

    I do think it is stupid that kids who meet all the requirements by junior year should have to do senior year at a high school. These kids will just be taking AP classes anyway so why not let them just enroll in college and do the real thing? A couple people I took AP courses with got credit in 5+ classes, basically skipping a full semester of college while having to sl udge through high school crap.

    I skipped 5th grade.

    Went from 4th straight to 6th.
    Double promoted.

    Then puberty set in in and I got stupid for a while.
