Then why this? http://www.actionnewsjax.com/news/state/story/Fla-college-graduation-rates-called-unacceptable/-aMy5VKKoEWxAkM9hnvQrg.cspx?rss=2 There does seem to be a disconnect. I teach at a state university and get students from "A" high schools that cannot divide and multiply fractions or do fraction to percentage conversions.

Fact is there needs to be national level high school test established. Then let Duval county schools brag about a grade if their student score in the top 25 percent of the nation. A grade in what? How to change names for school and brag ? Don't forget they allowed bullies this year back to class because "they had to or else". "They want push for kids not have cell phones. Reason is because it might get them in trouble when a teacher or someone else is caught on camera doing something that they shouldn't." They seem to forget that cell phones help spread warnings fastest when there is terror attacks going on. Not that news reports about those kind positive things it's not allowed to go against the system. Yes cell phones can be abused while in school but that would be what detention is for etc etc.

I am trying to figure out your math on your numbers for the schools, last year figures show 22 schools but for 2013 it is showing 23 schools that were graded. Where did the other school come from?

Since they changed the name of MY SCHOOL, Forrest, I expect it to change from a C school next year to A. After all, they said the name affected the students performance.
