Re: New oleander/schools

I can attest that the standardized test systems stinks, takes no
individuality into consideration, and is a ridiculous way to "categorize" a
child's (or adults) intelligence. I know whereof I speak, as I give the SAT
and ACT on a regular basis, and now, I have to take that stupid GRE which
has nothing whatsoever to do with my ability to learn Horticulture!
