The Texas Education Agency reported on Thursday the results from December showing that nearly 10 percent of all Texas high school seniors may possibly not graduate this spring.
According to the TEA, 90.3 percent of the Class of 2015 passed all exams for graduation, which include the test covering Algebra I, English I and II, Biology and U.S. History.
The 2013 Legislature reduced the number of end-of course exams required by Texas high school student from 15 to five. Fifteen was one of the largest number of test required in the U.S, and the Class of 2015 will be the first to graduate using these new standards.
In the fall, 84 percent of incoming seniors had passed all five test, with students not passing receiving another chance in May.
