LEE COUNTY, Fla. – The State of Florida bullied the Lee County School Board into rescinding its previous vote banning all assessments in the Southwest Florida school district.

The state threatened the district saying they would “lose hundreds of millions of dollars in funding and that its graduates diplomas would be worthless.”

Here is the video coverage from the CBS affiliate in Miami.

School board members say they have “both arms tied behind their back” because the assessments are tied to funding. So much for local control.
