Santa Clara county includes Palo Alto and Silicon Valley.   With these high exit scores, why does Silicon Valley need H-1b visas and green cards?  Why don’t they hire their own?

Criticism

The test has highlighted educational disparities by race, disability, income, and whether English is spoken in the home. This has been politically embarrassing for school districts, who were previously able to ignore their failures.[12][13]

Though O’Connell, by then the state Superintendent of Public Instruction, resisted the political pressure for a delay,[4] the state legislature granted students with previously documented learning disabilities a one-year reprieve in 2006.[14]

In May 2006, an Alameda County Superior Court judge struck down the CAHSEE, ruling that students from disadvantaged schools, the majority of them with low income or recent immigrants, had not been appropriately prepared for the test. The California Department of Education appealed the ruling directly to the state Supreme Court,[15] which reinstated the exam and upheld the CAHSEE.

Alternative assessments, such as evaluating students based on a portfolio of class work, have been proposed and rejected.[16] Alternative assessments consider a greater range of student work, but being non-standardized assessments, they are more susceptible to bias in grading. They are also much more expensive to grade, and concerns have been raised about cheating, since a student could present work created in a completely unsupervised setting.

By Alyssa Kincaid
Tideline Staff Writer

Even at our school, some people do not pass the CAHSEE the first time they take it. While 92 percent of tenth grade students passed the exam last year, eight percent did not. The general opinion of the student body appears to be that the exam is pretty easy and not useful. “It’s kind of pointless, because if you don’t pass it, you’re failing your classes anyway,” Junior Samuel Greenberg said. Supporting this perception, a report compiled in 2008 by HumRRO shows that 47 percent of students who take the exam think they work harder in English than the level that the standards of the CAHSEE test represent. Even so, the rest of the people that take the test feel they work at or below the level tested on the CAHSEE.
