Florida’s public schools showed strong signs of improvement with report cards released last month by the Department of Education. More than half of our state’s 3,200 schools achieved an A or B grade, increasing to 57 percent from last year’s 46 percent.
On the other end of the spectrum, the number of schools with F marks dropped by 61 percent.
Schools are graded annually based on graduation rates, standardized tests, student achievements and the number of pupils enrolled in challenging courses, among other factors.
