I was a public language arts teacher in Broward Co. for a few years - middle and high school. Any teacher can and will tell you that (on average) students go wild after FCATs are complete. If New Times has an Education Editor, float an idea by them for writing an educational research news piece covering how the percentage of students receiving disciplinary modification increases after FCAT testing is completed. This would be a great year to write about it because the FCAT is being replaced. If you work on this for a few years your research can look for bias towards the term "FCAT." Also, since Jeb Bush is running for office he might be inclined to comment on the end of the standardized test he championed (snark) and implemented.
