Graduating High School Is Easier Than You May Realize

Everybody wants to graduate. Kids want to graduate from high school. Young adults want to graduate from college. Adults want to graduate from grad school. Even parents want their kids to graduate. Everyone wants to graduate something, and there is one thing that we all can graduate from, and that is high school. If you’re a parent of a kid who is currently in high school, or if you’re a high school dropout, don’t give up hope on graduation.

Having kids in high school can be a daunting task. You have to watch them grow up and make their own decisions. This can be frustrating when they decide to blow off doing homework and other school projects. Luckily being the parent of the family gives you the authority to encourage them to do their work, or else. It’s one of the perks of being a parent after all. Even if they do complete their work, you may still worry if they’ll ever graduate high school.

There are several steps high school students have to complete in order to graduate in the state of California. The California Department of Education (CDE) set forth the standard that is required of students in order to graduate. Unfortunately, one of those requirements includes math. For starters, all high school students have to complete Algebra I or a course equivalent to that in order to graduate. Math is a touchy subject for a lot of people, and it can intimidate a lot of them into not passing the class.

Something that is exciting, is the fact that California high school students are no longer required to take the exit exam. The CASHEE, or the California High School Exit Examination, was eliminated in 2015. The CASHEE was a long series of tests given to students, similar to the standardized tests given near the end of every school year. However, unlike the standardized tests, the CASHEE determined if a student could graduate or not.

If you’re a parent, or a person who is looking to finally graduate from high school in California, there are plenty of tips and information for you at the CDE’s website. The state of California wants people to get an education. According to US News California currently ranks 26th amongst the states, which is why the state is making a push to improve its education. Everybody wants to graduate, and luckily you can graduate too.
