Another indicator the FCAT is failing and a clear indicator that being an "A" district has little value.
Thank you

Steve,
You could not be more correct.
While Jeb tries to market his reforms nationally, I wonder if he includes the end result; ranking near the bottom on two college readiness tests.
He speaks of raising the bar while easing standards. Then there is the gigantic percentage of those deemed college material as per acceptance,but then needing remediation and creating dropouts in a high ranking manner. Marketing Jeb's plan , imho, is marketing for disaster.

The reason is simple. There are many Hispanics in Florida.

Oh look, here I am posting from Malta. But strangely, nothing about nude boys or molestation, contrary to what MaltaMon always claimed.
Could MaltaMon be wrong? Could MaltaMon be lying?

I think the answer is simple, all students, at least boy students, should be disciplined by a bare-bottom spanking given by a clothed female administrator, in front of the female student body.
This would provide discipline, build character, and provide healthy erotic stimulation to budding young male teens.
I used this technique on my own son, and I can prove that it works.

You can't help yourself, can you, Bob of Dorval/Montreal, Canada. I'm sure that everyone is convinced that I, not you, wrote and posted this. It,seems you were busy this weekend: you posted as me on four threads. Are you too ashamed to put your own online identity to your own pedophile fantasies? And what provoked this latest round of fraudulent posts? I haven't said a word to you or,about you in months. Time to move on, Pedo Bob.

Nah. It isn't time, Pedo Baby. I sure that you have abused others. Your time will come. If not for my son's case, in that of someone else's child. Guys like you have many victims. Meanwhile, considering their source, insults from you, as always, are music to my ears. Lol. So keep 'em coming, jackass. Please keep them coming. Lol.

It really seems to matter to you, moron, because you keep responding to my taunts, despite your recent claim that you would no longer respond to me...

Hahahahahaha!
