I agree there is more information than I have time to acquire and digest, let alone retweet or post with any added value!  Certainly a technology worth taking a look at!

She was discussing how she has begun to feel defeated because  of the new requirement our state has that all students will take the state assessments on line. She was saying that this will simply murder their school performance.
