Books are Enough

The Power of Free, Self-Selected Reading

Florida Education Legacy

Florida high schools test about 80 days a year.  Schools are centered around testing and not learning. What has this done for African American males?

Florida graduation rates for Black males are below Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia (Schott Report). Overall rates are also dismal.

Will Weatherford  (Speaker of the House) once wrote an article on how testing has made Florida better. What world is he in? (Jebbushville)

With zero years of experience working with kids, Will might be a bit confused. He takes marching orders from Patty Levesque and Jeb Bush.

This is what testing madness has done to our kids. Now, Florida wants to increase testing with Common Core!

When will we stop letting these folks divert time and money from classrooms and into the educational testing complex?
