It's always a brutal wintry mix -- a school-closing snowstorm on a day when high school Regents exams are scheduled statewide.
It happened today in several districts in Central New York, leaving some students frustrated -- and with one less chance to pass exams they will need to graduate. If they miss taking a Regents exam in January, they can't try again until June.
Given how difficult the ELA Regents exam was (one might say purposely rigged by SED to hit a high failure rate goal - see here, here and especially here ), I'm not sure if students who missed the exam because of a snow day missed anything other than failing the test.
Well, there's always June - for both the students who were snowed out and the one's who took the test and still got snowed under by the yellow space alien dust the NYSED threw on them.
