Last week I got two notes sent home from school with MiniMe that I was asked to initial and send back to school with her. Both were reminders about the FCAT testing and were letters urging me to make sure she got a good night's sleep, a nutritious breakfast, etc. Beloved jokingly said last night as I ushered her to bed a half hour earlier than usual, "Maybe we should keep her up til midnight and feed her cookies for breakfast with the way education's going. What would it matter?"
Which got me thinking, yea, why should we keep doing our part? Why keep taking this FCAT thing seriously when flegislators aren't taking my kid's education very seriously and haven't been for years.
I know, I'm a rebel. And this idea falls under the category of "cutting off your nose to spite your face," but what if . . .
