U.S. Rep. Allen West hates the FCAT, too

14

November

west.Florida Congressman Allen West, a tea party darlin', channeled Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson in a speech last week and bashed the FCAT as good as any Democrat: “FCAT isn’t teaching [students],” West said at Florida Atlantic University, according to this story. “It makes you a robot."

A sign of the apocalypse? Or more evidence that ideological labels don't mean much when it comes to schools? (Remember Obama praising Jeb? Liberals slamming class-size reduction? A right-wing think-tanker calling SB 736 a train wreck?) (Image from shark-tank.net)
