That list was debated. It seems that overall FL education is poor.

FL has a handful of good schools.

And what is considered outstanding here is average in most states. They also encourage problem students to dropout and pursue a GED.

FL is 45 out of the 50 states in having students complete HS.

And they are lowering the standards on the FCAT again.

Education here is poor, if you have children you should look at private schools.

Maybe if more people speeky englais we would be better off instead of catering to spanglish. Make the OFFICIAL language ENGLISH and we'd all be better off. Half of my coworkers can't even speak English correctly and it gets so annoying and frustrating. Go back to school!!

Based on what? Beware of those rankings, some parents have been fooled to the detrement of their children.
