Springfield budget turmoil leaves ACT, other school testing in limbo
from Chicago Tribune
For years, Illinois' high school juniors took the ACT college entrance exam for free at school, like their brothers and sisters and friends before them. Many students took ACT precursor tests in junior high and early in high school, or signed up for ACT prep classes after school or during the summer. That would lead to the actual ACT exam, which the state has covered for 11th graders since 2001 as a way to get kids of all backgrounds on the path to college.
