BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – A New York literacy test designed to weed out unqualified teachers, called the Academic Literacy Skills Test, is to be done away with by the New York State Board of Regents as suggested by a task force. According to the AP, the test consists of questions that have multiple choice answers that should be easily passed by a 12th grade student. The president of the American Federation of Teachers Randi Weingarten, responded to the controversy by saying, “I totally object to our educators taking the test, because they have more than enough pressure as it is, without publicly exposing how stupid some of them are.”
