All year long Floridian students are taught what they will see on the FCAT. The schools are graded by the average score a school gets on the FCAT. FCAT really means, Florida Comprehensive Assesment Test. Instead of caring so much about the FCAT we should be thinking about more standardized tests (as in a standard to the nation, not Florida) such as the SAT and ACT. And that is a FACT.
Dylan: I hate the FCAT, it's so lame. There is too much pressure put into it.
Basically the first 10 years of school in florida is based upon this test, and ruins the lives of at least 25% of students. 50% if you count the nerds who thought they did bad even though they were 1000 points over the regular standards. Fuck Nerds.
