One of everyone's least favorite parts of school is standardized testing. It is always the most stressful time of the year. As college and high school students, we have to take a lot of standardized tests. The tests are supposed to tell school how hard we work and how well we do in school. However, standardized tests are actually designed to work against you at every step.

A Day at the Capitol with SGA

     Overall, it was a 10/10,” says Cassandra Gordon, The Student Government Association’s Region 3 Coordinator for the Florida College System’s SGA. Statewide, the students of SGA voted on upcoming bills and scheduled appointments to speak with Florida House Representatives and Senators about their collective stance on the bills.
     A couple of the Bills SGA spoke to Congress about were CS/HB 39 (companion bill SB542) Emergency Opioid Antagonists. This is a bill to get emergency medicine to counteract an overdose on to College campuses and could save student lives. Another bill discussed was
HB51 (SB 590) Prohibited Discrimination based on Hairstyle in the Education System. This is a great bill that protects the rights of ethnic, cultural, and minority students to wear their hair in traditional styles in K-12 and Higher Education.

     Cassandra related that it was a good learning experience and amazing to have the privilege of being on the house floor and speaking to our elected officials. She also said the chairs in the House of Representatives were so comfy, and the Congressional cafeteria food was delicious and fairly cheap! Way to go SGA! LSSC is proud of you and appreciates your positive representation of our student body!
