The Alligator reported that the Florida Department of Education requested to be exempt from certain portions of the No Child Left Behind law. In regard to standardized student-testing, the Alligator article quotes professor Dorene Ross as saying, “The emphasis on high-stakes testing has changed the school experience so that the emphasis is less on learning and more on performing on a test.”
