Pam Stewart says the system is fine while it is imploding.

From the Orlando Sentinel: "Today (Wednesday) we are seeing the assessment respond as it is intended to respond," Stewart told a Florida Senate education panel.

From the Times Union: Tuesday it was slow but better and Wednesday was even better, but as the week wore on more grades and students were added to the online test system and it is struggling to handle the load. Superintendent Nikolai Vitti said it looks like when Duval added middle schoolers to the high school students taking the test, they and other students around the state apparently overloaded the system.

“Unfortunately, as I expected, with the larger districts joining the testing process this morning, along with middle schools, the system imploded,” he said.

Um by intended to respond does she mean imploding?

You know I used to feel bad for Pam Stewart, who was intern commissioner twice, passed over by men not even from the state, but I get it now, she's either clueless, incompetent or both, and for her to tell a senate panel the problems were fixed when they obviously were not she may have passed over to the criminal as well.

It's time for Pam Stewart and this entire testing fiasco to go. Pull the plug Pam before it gets any worse.

  1. I used to give her the benefit of the doubt, but when she wrote an email to teachers to defend her insistence that a dying boy undergo the torture of Florida Alternative Assessment as he had less than a month to go, and then insisted that a child with no brain, only the stem, had to be tested, I knew then--Pam Stewart is a useless idiot. Perhaps she is the one with only a brain stem.
