This is getting so ridiculous. My Granddaughter in 1st grade already hates school. It's dry, boring, paper testing, far too many in the classroom. Awful, and she is in one of the "better" schools. Gov. Rick Scott (R) has made so many cutbacks that they can't even buy paper anymore and have asked parents to donate. They can't buy what the children need and there are too many children in classes so they can't do the interactive things like in the past.
