COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina may drop its three-decade-old requirement that high school students pass an exit exam to graduate.

Legislation that would remove the mandate has received widespread support from parents, educators and legislators of both parties. They say a single test should not determine a student's future.
Advocates for children with disabilities say the test can be the lone hindrance for students who can otherwise earn the 24 credits needed to earn a diploma.
