    This is wild!

    You will be able to read the paragraph below, no matter how messed up it appears to be.

    I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

    When I was an educator at a middle school, this wouldn't be unusual at anytime!

    This floats around education circles frequently. Makes me wonder about why we quibble over the little things and what's important in education?

    Don't know about WA but in Texas the MOST important thing is TAKS!!! (Texas Assesment of Knowledge and Skills, the state cure-all, fix-all test). You can tell I'm fond of it. If a student doesn't pass, he/she doesn't graduate. If a school gets a "low performing" grade, sanctions are dealt out, after a couple of years, administrators get fired, couple more years, teachers get fired, school gets shut down, etc, etc.............don't get me started.

    The real question is how many taxpayers dollars were spent on that study?
