The creation of the OGT as a mandatory reuqirement for the graduation in the state of Ohio has aroused great concern in teachers, parents, and thousands of students. The implementation of this test has been substandard; the scores of 2004's OGT clearly represent the distorted expectations of the test's creators.

The Ohio Department of Education has assured educators that the test requirements will be revised. However, this leaves many still wondering if these revisions will be enough to ensure an appropriately challenging test.

Unfortunately for the graduatiing class of 2007, they will become the guinea pigs of the "improved OGT."

This petition is a signed declaration of our opposition to the implementation of the Ohio Graduation Test.
