Minnesota (WDAY TV) -- Thousands of Minnesota high school graduates wouldn't have gotten diplomas this year without a waiver from the state.

They repeatedly failed Minnesota's math graduation test. In some districts, as many as one-third of seniors would not have graduated.

The Department of Education doesn't track how many waivers are issued or the number of retakes. About 57 percent of students pass the test on the first try.

Department officials say some districts and the state lack resources to report such data requirements.
