"[T]he children will need more"

The Roanoke Times offers this editorial saying that the Commonwealth needs to spend more money to make sure that no one is unfairly deprived of a diploma next year when passing the Standards of Learning tests becomes a prerequisite for graduation from high school in Virginia. (No surprise there - the Roanoke Times always seems to want higher taxes and more government spending (on anything but football), which is maybe another reason to oppose relaxation of the FCC's media ownership rules - to avoid a monopoly of bad ideas, as this columnist points out.)

This commentary suggests in a bit more scientific manner that Virginia needs a plan to deal with those who flunk the SOLs.
