Florida's Public Education Ranks 10th in the Nation

Florida’s public schools are getting better, according to the magazine Education Week. The state’s education ranking jumped from 14th to 10th, and its overall grade moved up from a C-plus to a B-minus.

The ranking was part of an annual report released Wednesday. Last year the state moved up from 31st to 14th.

The rankings are focused on six areas: chance for success; transitions and alignment; schools finance; K-12 achievement; standards; and teaching.

“The Quality Counts report released today clearly indicates that Florida’s schools are on the right track and that our students are being prepared to compete with students across the nation,” said Gov. Charlie Crist. “I am committed to building upon the tremendous progress made in the last two years and under Gov. Jeb Bush’s leadership.”

Florida’s education commissioner, Eric Smith, called it a “stunning achievement.”
