The latest evidence that public education is going right down the crapper? In Virginia, the test you have to take before you can progress to the next grade is called the SOL. An adult who should know better came up with that! Next thing you know, kids will have to take the BBW before they can take gym, the STFU before Study Hall and the WTF before they can take Calculus. People, come on! I am shocked and appalled that Virginia did worse than Mississippi on the “You gots to takes this test so’s we knows we taughts you right” test. Mississippi’s is the FLE, which isn’t bad. I don’t giggle when I say FLE, although, if Oh Brother had come out at the time, I would have asked that they change the name of the test to the R-U-N-N-O-F-T, which suits Mississippi a little better than FLE.
