PolitiFact: Gov. Crist's comment on Florida's graduation rate mostly true
PolitiFact put his statement under a microscope and found it mostly true:
"Under the 1998 rubric, Florida's graduation rate has steadily increased every year, except for a dip in 2005-06. It rose from 60.2 percent to 78.6 percent in 2008-09 — the highest under that formula."
