Calculators that work... too well

From the annals of too much reliance on technology and not enough reliance on brainpower, we find this story. Seems middle schools students can use calculators on their standardized tests, but the Texas Instruments calculators that local schools purchased can do fractions... I say let's go back to pencil and paper and ditch the calculator altogether, at least for middle school standardized tests. Of course, since the kids probably can't add, subtract, multiply, or divide, the calculators will help out on those tests.
