"Jordan District auditors have found that a Shakespeare class doesn't
sufficiently advance the state core curriculum."

If Utah is anything like California, the problem here is not
Shakespeare, it's the state core curriculum.

This is the problem with standardized testing.  Teachers are "teaching
to the test." In Texas, it means that the curriculum continues to
shrink, and "the tale wags the dog."
