WATCH: 9-Year-Old Goes Off About Standardized Testing & We LOVE Her for It

Sydney Smoot, 9, went to the Hernando County School Board meeting in Florida and had a mission. She is fed up with standardized testing and the precarious position it puts many students in.

You’ll quickly notice in the above video that prior to Smoot beginning her speech, it was just another boring school board meeting. However, when she gets up the mood changes and things turn beautiful.

There is no doubt that Smoot has great things to accomplish in her lifetime. We’re just happy we get to feature her debut on First to Know.
