Miss. Could Be First to Use ACT as High School Exit Exam

JACKSON, Miss. – If you went to college you probably took the ACT. Governor Phil Bryant, school district leaders, and members of the House are pushing to have the ACT required as a high school exit exam for public school students. That would make Mississippi the first state to set a minimum score on the test in order to graduate.

A bill creating a pilot program for juniors has already cleared the Miss. House with only one vote against it. The bill is now being looked over in the senate.

Opponents say the ACT does not assess how well you did in high school, but how well you will do in college.
