San Francisco, California - In response to the California High School Exit Exam controversy, Attorney General Kamala D. Harris released the following statement:

“As the result of a thoughtless bureaucratic blunder, thousands of high school graduates face the prospect of not being able to enroll in college, serve their country through the military, or pursue other professional goals.  This oversight creates real and immediate harm for these students.  I look forward to working with our state leaders to fix this injustice immediately and ensure our students are given the opportunity to pursue their educational and professional dreams."
