TAKS vs GED

Star-Telegram.com | 06/17/2006 | State broadens definition of dropouts:

During trial runs, six out of 10 high school seniors could not pass the GED exams, according to the council. But some local teens said the GED program is less demanding than high school. “It’s pretty easy,” said Tiffany Lundgren, 17, who dropped out of Richland High School in the Birdville district and earned a GED certificate. “You can finish it in four to five weeks if you try. It’s basically just practice tests.”

It would be interesting to know how many GED passers could pass the TAKS and how many TAKS passers could pass the GED. Maybe it all comes down to willing to try.
