FCAT writing scores 'disaster': FCAT writing scores this year dropped so dramatically that one superintendent called them a "disaster" and state officials are seeking to mitigate the damage - South Florida Sun-Sentinel.com

Been all over the news here! Curious to see how it plays out!

I hate standardized testing. Some of the districts here dropped their recess from 30 minutes to 15 minutes so they could spend more time improving math test scores. As if that 15 minutes is really going to make the difference! Those kids need their exercise and a break.

I'm not a fan of standardized testing either. I hope your district can sort things out.

Quite glad there's no standardized testing over here until the kids are 15!
