In the latest installment of the poor Florida students who couldn’t graduate because they failed their standardized tests, the state legislature passed a bill (which brother Jeb says he’ll sign) allowing students to substitute their ACT or SAT scores. But after all the screaming, the measure only helps 405 kids out of the 12,500 who didn’t pass the test. 405 who got at least 370 on the verbal part of the SAT and 350 on the math part! On top of that about 5000 of the total didn’t finish their course work in the first place.
