The AIMS test, a highly stressful test that all students in the state of Arizona are required to pass in order to graduate, is being abolished. The issue arose suddenly and out of the blue late at night. Very few people knew about the plans to remove the test; not even the school Superintendent knew about it until hours after the decision was final. I found out about this while watching the New and decided to look for the link to see if there was more that I missed. Expectedly, they plan to replace the AIMS test, but with a a college entrance exam. Whether this will be a requirement for graduation like the AIMS is unclear at this point. Classes of `09 will still have to pass the AIMS as a part of graduation.

So... is getting rid of the AIMS test a good thing or is it bad?

Ok, lets just lower the standard just a little more so that some undeserving asshole can feel good about barely graduating.

I'm an A/B student and I have mixed feelings about this. First off the fact that the test is gone is obviously something to make me happy, but you have to think about it. I've already passed the math and language arts part of the test, and I would be on my way to finishing the rest had they decided to keep them, but now I feel like my work was meaningless. I also can't help but wonder if the impression I leave when I go to college would've been greater if I had the AIMS test under my belt.
