California's Board of Education adopted a policy Dec. 5 to allow some learning-disabled students -- including dyslexics -- to use calculators while taking the state's high school exit exam. Readers, aides who read the material to students, also will be allowed. Some disability rights advocates say the measures don't go far enough. They say the state should create an alternate way to test skills, because some learning-disabled students haven't been taught material included in the exit exam.
