Danbury High School To Stop Midterms, Final Exams

DANBURY, Conn. -- Danbury High School is looking to stop the long-accepted yet dreaded practice of administering midterm and final exams to its nearly 3,000 students, according to the NewsTimes.com .

The Danbury Board of Education approved the proposal to end midterms and finals during a workshop Wednesday and is expected to formally approve the plan at its next meeting, the NewsTimes.com said.

Principal Gary Bocaccio and a majority of teachers support the plan because the tests take away too much classroom time, students take plenty of other tests, and finals don't serve as a learning tool.

Opponents said studying for midterms and finals helps students prepare for college.

The week of half-days in January and May for the tests would become full classroom days.
