FCAT Scratch Fever-Many other states have made similar moves, but Florida is now requiring a passing score on the FCAT-the test might keep about 20,000 students from graduating if they don't come up with passing scores in March. The lawsuits are expected to fly once diplomas are denied. This is an interesting side-point. Home schoolers and private-school students aren't required to take the FCAT. However, if they go on to college, the SAT or the ACT will serve as a decent substitute. The piece points out that despite the lack of a formal graduation format, colleges are readily accepting home-schooled kids. From what I know of most home schoolers, they don't need no steenkin FCAT to tell them where they're at.
