Just had this article texted to me by my friend Remington.
I can’t wait for Government to run healthcare. Apparently the only way to get a waiver for your child to not take the standardized tests in Florida is for them to actually die. However sick they get in the process, including being born without a brain, is no excuse to Florida politicians for not being required to take the standardized education tests. Government…in perfect form!
My favorite quote from this article…
Another child, a 9-year-old named Michael, was also forced to take the same test in Florida last year, despite the fact that he was born only with a brain stem, not a brain. Orange County School Board member Rick Roach, who watched the examination, couldn’t believe what he was seeing.
“He’s blind. And they’re showing him pictures of a giraffe, a monkey and an elephant — and asking him which one is the monkey,” Roach said to the newspaper. “I’m watching all this and just about to lose my mind.”
Lose your mind? Just wait. They’re just barely getting started.
