GIRLS ONLY: Just For Girls applies to open Manatee's first charter school for girls, the Bradenton Herald reports. 

TEACHER ASSESSMENTS: The shift in evaluating teachers based on student outputs has raised concerns in Miami-Dade, the Miami Herald reports.

TIME TO FIGHT BACK: The new president of the St. Johns teachers union says she's ready to wage political battle for teachers, the St. Augustine Record reports.

STUDENT TURNOVER: Poor Orange County students who transfer schools frequently are most at risk of poor academic performance, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
