I think the high school exit exam is good because it tests your knowledge on basic skills that you should have already learned in school.
It also holds teachers accountable for helping students pass this test. It is a basic test that students should learn in their K-12 education. It is fair because those who do well should be able to graduate after they pass it.
I think every state should do it so that people who just get by can start paying attention and do well in school. I think we should start giving it freshman year so they have a higher probability of passing it after they take it a few times.
