commonly called “The Nation’s Report Card.” It rates performance by fourth- and eighth-grade students in 27 large school districts covering communities across the USA from San Diego to Boston.

Overall, Hillsborough’s students maintained a high level of performance, most significantly, 4th graders tied for first place nationally in reading and math, while 8th graders tied for first place in reading and second place in math nationwide. The students continue to outperform public school students in other large school districts.

“I am thrilled for our students, our teachers and staff. These results show our students are excelling in the classroom and can compete with students across the country. Our increased graduation rate and now these significant results show students, from our early learners all the way to our high school students are paving the way to a successful future,” said Superintendent Jeff Eakins.

So much for blanket statement of Florida schools suck...

I won't challenge this until I know more, but I can say without exception that the increased graduation rate is a total crock of sh*t. There is some major reality distortion regarding the data they have used to establish the graduation rate, and the sudden jump that has occurred in the last year or two is statistically unlikely in many people's opinions, mine included.

Teachers and staff have called this out but the District certainly won't respond with anything meaningful to either support their claims or refute those of their detractors.
