Steve Crisafulli, another clueless republican legislator.

Is anybody seeing a pattern here? 

From the Miami Herald: Democrats argued that the state should not assign A-to-F grades this year because of the troubled rollout of a new standardized test. The test, which is being given online in many grades, is based on standards linked to Common Core but has been hampered by technical glitches and even what state officials assert was a cyberattack. The school grades have been in place since 1999 and were a centerpiece of changes pushed by Bush.
"Are we really going to potentially penalize our students with a system we don't know is working or not?" asked Rep. Alan Williams, a Democrat from Tallahassee.
GOP legislators pointed out that this year there are no sanctions if schools fare poorly on the new tests, but they argued that schools should still have a chance to earn top grades and the financial rewards that come with them.
"Why should we punish those who have actually gone out and prepared for it (the test)?" said House Speaker Steve Crisafulli.
Um, hey jackhole everybody has been preparing and everybody has been working hard but unfortunately not everybody has middle class students with involved parents.
You see that's what Cristafulli thinks, he doesn't believe teachers at the poorer performing schools are trying. His cluelessness is overpowering.
