Too much FCAT prep?

I’m hearing that schools are mandating that teachers do nothing in their reading, math and science classes but prep their students for the FCAT, which is next week. What are you hearing and seeing? What do you think about the emphasis placed on the prep work?

Because I know teachers and parents are afraid of retaliation, I will allow posts to this article to be anonymous. I do ask that you give me your proper email address (which I will not publish) so I can validate info if necessary. If you’re comfortable, please name the school.
