    If a student earns a diploma from MCPS, that student should be educated enough to take for-credit courses at any Maryland community college. Otherwise, the diploma is worthless. Similar to the University of Maryland allowing all associate degree holders from Montgomery Community College into it, so should the high school diploma guarantee the ability to take for-credit courses. My daughter graduated from Walter Johnson High School in 2008; but she could not pass the Accuplacer test so she has been thwarted in her efforts to take for-credit courses. The diploma has to mean something.
