Florida Passes Plan for Racially-Based Academic Goals

The Education Board says it wants 90% of Asian students, 88% of White students, 81% of Hispanic students and 74% of Black students to be proficient at reading and math at or above grade level by 2018. It also measures other groupings such as poverty and disabilities. This is infuriating many community activists in Palm Beach County and across the state. I think it is beyond disgusting. How will the teachers do this. Separate the kids in classrooms by group? So many problems could arise I that are too numerous to mention. Florida is one sick Republican state.

The President is not taking any s**t from the

reporters. Walked away from the last question as it was shouted to him as he was walking away.

I am afraid of exit poles

Remember what happened 2004 with John Kerry? All the poles showed a win then suddenly 11:00PM Bush was ahead . I was devastated.

Just got my third or forth robo call from the GOP

Party in Gainesville, Fl. I called the Republican Headquarters and told them I received their call and I just voted for Obama. I was polite even though I really wanted to say what I thought.

I am trying to find out if Obama will be in Orlando, Fl Monday.

I found it on one site but couldn't confirm it. I have Amway Arena but nothing on Amway Arena that Obama will be there. Very frustrated as I could make if I had some sort of confirmation

In answer to Lawrence O,Donnell

He votes third party because he lived in states that he says Democratic candidates never visit. I believe one was N.Y.
I lived in N.Y. and saw Eisenhower, Nixon, Kennedy and Reagan. Even shook hands with JFK. Saw Clinton in Florida and Michell Obama in Gainesville FL I am still very disappointed in Lawrence
