CPS is changing its promotion policy for some students.

Officials say it’s to ensure more students get the support they need during the school year.

Last year, more than 4,600 students with low scores on the Illinois Standard Achievement Test were required to attend summer school before moving to the next grade.

    If the idiots (90% of CPS students) cannot successfully pass the 8th grade assessment test, ship them off to the military.
