High school students keep waiting to find out test scores

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

But many schools still cannot tell students
whether they've earned the certificate, and
neither can the state Department of Education.

A $350,000 software program that couldn't make
accurate calculations and did not run on time
gets much of the blame.

Probably not Y2K related...just bad system design and/or execution (programming). But I do feel for the kids...as usual they get the short end of the stick when the educational system fails...
