Elementary School Stops Serving Mountain Dew Before Standardized Tests

MELBOURNE, Fla., April 23 (UPI) —
A Florida elementary school has decided to stop letting students “Do the Dew” prior to taking standardized tests.

Administrators at Creel Elementary have decided to cease their long-standing practice of serving Mountain Dew prior to administering the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.

The school had been giving students about three tablespoons of soda before the FCAT.

Officials at Brevard Public schools halted the practice after receiving complaints from a grandmother who was shocked at what her granddaughter said about her assessment test.

Creel has been serving Mountain Dew for the last 10 years because Principal Kathryn Eward reportedly read about its positive health impacts in an education journal, Brevard Public Schools Spokeswoman Michelle Irwin told Florida Today.
