Marion County Teacher Speaks Out Against FSA Test

By

A Marion County teacher wrote an open letter to students and parents Sunday telling them why she think students will fail the new Florida Standards Assessments math exam.

Jeanelle Wellhoner, a fifth-grade teacher at College Park Elementary School in Ocala, penned an open letter in the Ocala Star-Banner in which she apologized to students and parents for failing to adequately prepare students for the new standardized test.

The letter is the most recent occurrence of teachers speaking out about the Common Core standards and school testing.

Last September Susan Bowles, an Alachua County teacher, made headlines for refusing to administer a state-mandated test to her students.
