MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A new report claims thousands of new Minnesota high school graduates may not have necessarily earned their diplomas.

That’s because some students repeatedly failed Minnesota’s standardized mathematics test required for graduation, according to a St. Paul Pioneer Press report released on Monday. In some districts, as many as one-third of seniors wouldn’t have graduated without a waiver from the state.

The Minnesota Department of Education said they don’t currently track how many waivers are issued each year. About 57 percent of students pass the test on the first try.
