AUSTIN — Standardized test results show Texas high school students are struggling to pass, and those who fail don’t fare much better when they’re retested.

Thousands of students starting Monday will retake the five State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness exams they must pass to graduate: Algebra I, biology, English I and II and U.S. history. Those who haven’t passed can retake the tests as many times as needed.
