More Proof that government schools are EVIL and promote stupidity and ignorance! More proof that sending your own child to a government school is CHILD ABUSE!
The Florida Department of Education lowered the performance level standard on a state writing exam after only 27 percent of fourth graders passed, MyFoxOrlando reports.
The decision to lower the standard from a four to a three was made in an emergency conference call Tuesday. The test scores range from zero to six.
Fourth grade teachers say the test inadequately reflected their pupils’ writing abilities. They say the main reason the students did poorly was the test question was too hard.
According to the Florida Department of Education, the prompt, or essay topic, for fourth graders in the state of Florida this year was, “Suppose you or someone else had a chance to ride a camel. Imagine what happens on this camel ride. Write a story about what happens on this camel ride.”
Some teachers say the question was unfair, arguing it may be unrealistic to expect fourth-graders to know what a camel is.
