Books are Enough

The Power of Free, Self-Selected Reading

Florida kicks off the new year with… more testing!

As Florida students and teachers returned to classes this week they were given a dose of reality. Florida schools are about testing and NOT teaching. Here is part of an email sent out to one school…

Good Morning,
Because of ELA Diagnostics for the next 2 1/2 weeks, all labs and laptops will be used for testing.
Thanks and Welcome Back!

I noticed how happy the sender sounds. This is the sad state of affairs in Florida. Talk is cheap. It is time to act to end this.
