We need to make strong changes on education. make sure our kids spend their time on learning. Not about filling boubles for a standardize test.The fcat cause student to graduate with out a regular diploma.One thing we must remenber is that other country is ahead of us in education. this is what the fcat all about. have we ever think about our student who came from other country with no english they have to take that test and they don't likely to be succesful on that test? we must stand and spread the word for the change in education reform in all public school.Remenber our student is our future!!!
