Good news from the boy

He passed the reading portion of his high school exit exam! With a whopping good score, too.

He’d already passed the writing & math portions last fall, would’ve passed the reading too I think if he hadn’t forgotten he was testing that day. I was a little surprised — but very pleased — that he passed those, because he’d had problems with them when he’d done the tests before.

He’s come a long damn way from when he first arrived with us, having had so chaotic a life that his education was way behind for his age. At age 9, he couldn’t read at all, & in fact it wasn’t until he was about 13, or maybe it was 14, that he began to read independently.

Never mind that the Alaska high school exit exam requirement is a crock of shit. He passed! Now he can graduate! Yeehaw!
