FCAT to Stay…in Some Form

January 8th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist has called for changes to the FCAT test, and will likely use his state of the state address in March to recommend changes. Today, his Education Commissioner, Dr. Eric Smith, told state lawmakers that accountability is important, but that educators and lawmakers must listen to parents when making decisions. Our accountability system must, must maintain a structure that assures mom and dad, the tax payers that are paying the bill, that were delivering on the promise of a bright future, an opportunity as an adult in the workforce.

Smith says some form of FCAT and accountability testing is necessary if schools are going to be held accountable to parents.
