"Then came the question from hell out of Louisiana: 'What are the qualities of a good leader?'"

How can our kids write an essay on something they've never been exposed to living in LA?

How do you score a kid who rails that his town sucks? What about an exceptionally well-written essay on why the student was refusing to answer the question?

My God, that second case is basically how I got through high school. I'd have not chance in this system.
