This is the same stupid county that couldn’t figure out how to vote in the last
TWO elections. We’re not talking MENSA members, here. I don’t care who you voted

You can get three-quarters of the answers wrong and still pass this test.
Palm Beach County high school students taking a new history exam this week need to answer just 23 of 100 multiple-choice questions correctly to pass.
To get an A, they need to get just over half the answers right. A B grade requires only 39 correct answers.
The new final exam for American and world history classes was developed by school district officials to ensure students learn state- required lessons that include history about women, Africans, African-Americans and the Holocaust.
The 100-question test, specific to Palm Beach County, replaces individual final exams that teachers create themselves. The district, which recommended the grading scale, sent letters to schools giving them the option to use it on the new test.
