Stunned teachers suspect scoring problem for poor FCAT writing results

Florida took the equivalent of a teacher's red pen to students' FCAT essays this week, marking up error after error and then scrawling a lousy grade at the top of the paper.

I would just like to say that I was informed today by the 8th grade dean at Kissimmee Middle School that a student named Daniel Rios in the 8th grade scored a perfect score on his F-cat essay test and was the only student in his grade in the school to accomplish this. I feel that as quick as we are to report when things arent going right some recognition for this young mans hard work should not go unnoticed.

Congrats to the perfect score. Issue here isn't a grading problem, its a System problem.. Big question is are they taking all the "superstar ESE " scores out of the tally for the rating grades. Cause a lot of those ESE classes are really for kids who are lazy and refuse to behave or work and have poor parenting at home.
