Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Miami-Dade superintendent Carvalho gives a primer on Florida accountability concerns



Miami-Dade schools superintendent Alberto Carvalho has long served as the eloquent vocal front man for superintendents statewide, as they challenge the parts of Florida's education accountability model they find inappropriate.

At his board's most recent meeting, he took about 10 minutes to encapsulate the argument that so many groups have adopted in recent weeks. Carvalho tackles the issue of testing reliability and validity, the need for learning gains in school grades, and other key points.

Rather than try to summarize, we'll just let you watch the video, courtesy of Suzette Lopez from Opt-Out Miami-Dade.
