Suddenly, Everyone Is Taking the ACT Exam

More Oklahoma high school students than ever are taking the ACT college-readiness exam before graduation, which reflects a major push intended to place more students on the path to a fouryear college degree.

Newly released data shows that in 2017, Oklahoma had the largest gain of any state in the percentage of ACT-tested graduates and, for the first time, reached 100 percent of graduating seniors tested, as measured by statistical projections for number of graduates. The number of students taking the exam increased from 32,854 in 2016 to 42,405 in 2017, according to data released by ACT Inc. Thursday.

Extending Okla. Standard Across State Lines

In the wake of one of the most destructive storms to ever hit the United States, Oklahoma’s neighbor to the south is facing tragic flooding, property damage, and trying times. Although facing a catastrophe of a different kind, the Oklahoma Standard is the promise we made years ago to take care of each other in times of tragedy. In the face of Hurricane Harvey, Texas needs to see that the Oklahoma Standard transcends state lines.

While persistent storms and record breaking rainfall levels continue to pummel Texas and nearby states, we all want to do what we can to help the states in our surrounding area. It’s true that every little bit helps, but if you’re interested in donating your time, goods, or funding to the relief efforts, consider where your donations would be best served and always be cautious of charity scams.
