Florida Testing Obsession- Exhibit A

I do not even need to comment on this email sent to me from a friend. There is so much testing that kids are often scheduled for two tests a day. And some have “priority.”

“If you have a US History pass for a student and they are scheduled to
take AICE Language today please pull the pass. AICE takes priority and
we do not want them taking 2 exams in the same day.”

You can’t make this stuff up. The clown car is here. Send in the clowns.

*Note: The AICE Language exam is a two day 4.5 hour test. I think if kids pass they qualify for the Bar and a medical license in 14 states…
