Letter to the editor: Were senior students in Sumter allowed to skip final exams?


There are lots of questions I have, but this one question, for now at least, needs to be asked. Oh yeah, and answered.

Is it true that seniors in the Sumter school system were exempt from final exams if they had a 60 average in that particular class? I was told by three different students, from two different schools, that this was exactly the case.

Please answer this question for the taxpayers in this city ... and the parents of these children.
