Way too many tests of questionable value, quite frankly.

Time to tell GWB to stick it where the sun don't shine.

Yes, there are some funds tied to middle school test scores for funding after-school activities under the Families and Education levy.

The FEL Oversight Committee (includes a bunch of Ed Reformers like Tim Burgess, Bree Dusseault (sp? who the fuck cares?), Greg Wong, Guasab beuwkus(?, again whatever!).

I'll say for the one time in God's creation I agree with the Washington Policy Center, the FEL does not, (nor needs not) "prove" its effectiveness. I have a firm belief (not requiring data, like it is some sacrament) that taxpayers understand the benefit of afterschool activities that involve MS and HS kids in something other than gangbangin' and hanging out. These things are; writing, dancing, drama, and sports. Oh Shit! we can't measure that with MAP! Oh well! Whatever will get Tim Burgess elected mayor, right?! Never!

I'd love to know the cost of these tests and what has been cut over the years in order to cover the cost of these mandatory tests? It has certainly made Neil Bush wealthier, and many others.
