They were useless regardless. My kids would spend the last month of every year studying for the SOL instead of learning anything.

I thought everyone was SOL currently

Permission to cancel the testing requires US Department of Education approval.

Oh sure, does anyone think Betsy DeVos won't approve that in under 1 second?  Your kids don't need no edumacation.  If you did, you'd be in private schools.

The "Satellite of Love", for you non-MST3K viewers.

Pluto TV has a dedicated MST3K channel.  I think I've now seen all of the episodes.  Yeah, there's RiffTrax, but it ain't the same.

Yep! Welcome to Virginia, where we have the BEST acronyms!

The Standards Of Learning are based on the Program Of Studies. Students and teachers makes S.M.A.R.T.R. goals based on these. (SMARTR does not contain an E, because apparently in education they couldn't come up with a word that starts with E.)

The greatest of all time, though, was merely bad luck: our grading software changed over to a new system called Integrated Student Information System, the summer before ISIS became a household-known thing. For one glorious first quarter, parents--many of whom are military in VA--got automatic emails with subject lines like, "ISIS has information about your children!"

They have since edited that last one so that it's just SIS now.

And that's Virginia education in a nutshell.
