A friend of mine from New York just travelled to Glenpool, Oklahoma. While shopping at Walmart, she snapped a photo of this cereal box. I wish she had taken a photo of the entire display, which she later reported was full of “testing day cereal boxes.”
A short post today, just to raise awareness of the fact that General Mills seems to be in full support of standardized testing. The fact that a major company would capitalize off of the overly exhausting testing of small children makes me feel a bit sick. The icing on the cake is that this cereal has marshmallows in it! So, now the message to parents and children is: If you eat marshmallows on the morning of the test, everything will be okay.
If a cereal company is going to benefit from standardized testing, I just wish it was all organic. Are we scared yet?!
