While I agree that it was absolutely needed that you allow Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi to grant students exemptions from Grade XII high school diploma examinations, I also believe it was astute to make the exemptions voluntary. As crazy as it seems, there will be students in the affected flood areas who want the best mark possible & enjoy the challenge of doing their absolute best. They of course do this so that they can get into the best post-secondary or technical institutions possible, as well as qualifying IV grants towards their education, etc. Needless to Naheed is very astute b/c all the graduating Grade XII's who are XVIII (18) & over will now pay him back with their vote in the October Calgary election for Mayor.
