AP PHILOSOPHY: A growing number of Florida high school students take Advanced Placement courses, often earning A's, but still fail the exams, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

SPECIAL ATTENTION: A Brevard parochial school focuses its efforts on special education, using inclusion for every student, Florida Today reports. 

SCANDALOUS: Continued problems with the FCAT create a loss of credibility for the state test, which makes it a waste of time and money, the Lakeland Ledger editorializes.

US IT OR LOSE IT: St. Johns high school students attend a technology-oriented summer program to keep learning when school is out, the St. Augustine Record reports.

WHOSE WORDS? Many college students don't understand the concept of plagiarism in a world of "sampling," copying and pasting, the NY Times reports.
