FCAT as a campaign issue
Candidates are talking a lot about the FCAT, Florida’s standardized achievement test. Do you think the FCAT is a fair way to measure school performance? Should it be tied to school funding? If you were running for governor, what would you propose to improve education in Florida? Be sure to explain how your plan would measure student achievement.
Here's an added bonus - our Xteam moderators and NIE staff will select the best ideas submitted this week and the students who wrote them will win a St. Petersburg Times backpack!
