The Power of Free, Self-Selected Reading

Florida Testing Takes over Schools Again

Here is part of an email that was forwarded to me from a teacher.

“Because of retake testing & preparation for FSA’s in April ALL Public Labs and COWs are being used in some capacity ( testing or ePat/FSA training). ”

COWS are laptops. The state requires all students to take ePat and FSA training tests for EACH EOC or FSA test they take- another loss of teaching time. Labs are testing centers- not places of learning or research.

This is the sickness that infects our schools.
