So in school I am taking a high school English 1 class even though I am in eighth grade. Normally this would mean that I would get a high school credit for English 1 and not have to take it next year in ninth grade. However, Louisiana government recently passed the Every Student Succeeds Act, or ESSA. Due to regulations set in place by the act, nobody in the state of Louisiana can receive high school credit for English 1 classes, which is bad because the kids that are taking English 1 in eighth grade in Louisiana will have to take the class again in ninth grade. Kinda defeats the purpose of having a high school class in middle school doesn't it?
