South Carolina lawmakers have introduced a bill that would end the state's 30-year-old requirement that high-school students pass an exit exam to graduate. Under the bill, students would continue taking the exam for school accountability, while a study group would be set up to consider alternatives. If the bill is approved, the state would join North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama, which have scrapped or are phasing out such tests, according to the Center on Education Policy.
