Jacqueline Kennedy was born on this day in 1929, in Southhampton, New York.  She was named Jacqueline Lee Bouvier.  Her father, John, was a stockbroker on Wall Street whose family had come from France in the early 1800s. Her mother, Janet, had ancestors from Ireland and England. 
As a child, Jackie loved to read. Before she started school, she had read all the children’s books on her bookshelves. Her heroes were Mowgli from Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book, Robin Hood, Little Lord Fauntleroy’s grandfather, Scarlett O’Hara from Gone With the Wind, and the poet Byron.

For the third time since 2009, students face an overhauled ISTEP proficiency exam, one that will assess their mastery of Indiana’s just adopted math and English benchmarks. The test also will be more interactive, possibly requiring students to highlight passages of text on a computer to show how they reach certain conclusions. Teachers and district administrators fear the quickly crafted test could negatively impact them and their students. Student performance on the high-stakes exam helps determine whether teachers get a raise and how schools are graded on the state’s A-to-F rating system.

Just so everyone’s aware of what I’m currently dealing with.
