This is a movie-that at this point-has an unhappy ending

Hundreds of students in Oklahoma graduate from high school each year without basic reading, writing and math skills. They have a diploma but, like a car with no engine, they can go nowhere. Many of them just give up.

Parents see A’s and B’s on student report-cards. In many districts, the grade point average for seniors is 3.2 to 3.4. Yet, in many districts approximately 3 students out of 4 fail the state standardized tests at the end of the year, and ACT scores are very low.
