A teacher cannot use a book about her class in class

In the ultimate testing irony, a Florida teacher whose class was feautered in a book about the Florida Everglades cannot use that book with her class, as it does not relate to the state's mandated reading test, the FCAT. Brother Jeb is using his big brother's methods to destroy public education in Florida with a mindless test like Texas uses. The link to the story can be found here

Time for a "Teachers Revolution" against "regal tyranny", "evil directives without representation" etc. etc. This could be dangerous, in that, IIRC, FL. is one of those "bellweather" states that often start something that other states pick up and use?

My webblog now has a blogroll and you are one it. Thanks for reading my thoughts and comments.
Keep up the fight!
