Florida Finally Got One Right...

Well, Florida has finally achieved something it should have been doing all along. Ensuring that it's public high school graduates have achieved a certain level of education. Starting this year, students must pass the FCAT test to earn their diploma. What's sad is this test (generally held to a 10th grade reading/math level) was failed by 1 in 10 students in the state of Florida.

Kinda amazing isn't it?

Anyways, here's to Florida, having done some incredibly stupid things (a number of which I've chronicled on this site) actually holding those it's says have a certain level of education to ACTUALLY having that education.
