Kentucky has just joined a small but growing list of states mandating the ACT be taken in eleventh grade. Michigan passed similar legislation in December of '04. As more states continue to adopt the ACT as a requirement for graduation (paid for with tax dollars) we will have a vehicle to usher in a national test. It's going to happen. When it happens remember you read it here first.
If you live in Virginia I'd be calling my legislator asking for support in an effort to drop the college requirement for home educators. Definitely a step forward.
