Nowadays the high school diploma is already pretty worthless in the real world; hell its getting harder and harder to get a job with a college education. Does this mean we should just give everyone a high school diploma regardless of whether they actually know anything? Most would say "no", but some parents and students in Fort Worth staged a protest outside of the school district headquarters because students who failed to pass the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) test were not going to be allowed to graduate. The picture below is from said protest and a picture really is worth a thousand words: Are kids, there knot dum!
