A rare bit of positive news from Florida was when a Gainesville teacher refused to administer a standardized test to her kindergarten class. Other teachers, parents and even administrators stood behind her and advocated for change, but a few weeks of weak murmurs about testing demonstrated that few supporters had any gumption other than suggest that people write their legislators. As if that has ever done any good especially in a state where political agendas have never intended to do anything useful about education beyond blaming everyone else for their failure.
