Pam Ingram graduated from Robinson High School in Tampa 23 years ago.
She remembers her grade-point average (3.75). She recalls her class rank (26).
The English teacher at Wesley Chapel High doesn’t recollect her SAT score, though. And she’s not about to look it up to apply for Florida’s controversial new teaching bonus, although she’s fairly certain to qualify.
“It’s stupid,” said Ingram, who is rated “highly effective” by her principal. “I don’t see what SAT scores have to do with anything other than how you do your first year in college, and even that isn’t a determining factor.”
