Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Third-grade FCAT results due out Thursday


The Florida Department of Education has announced that it will release third-grade FCAT reading and math scores on Thursday, and not on Friday as expected.

We don't want to say this is a rush job. But the department's press release, issued after 5 p.m. today, sports the headline "DEPARTMENT OF EDUATION TO RELEASE THIRD GRADE READING AND MATHMETICS RESULTS."

Bet that the critics who already are questioning the validity of the tests and the results will have a field day with that one.
