Floridas Youth Scoring Better on FCAT

May 21st, 2008 by flanews

The future is looking bright for the states third graders. Reading and math FCAT scores were released Wednesday. Results show 72 percent of the states third graders are reading at or above grade level and 76 percent are at or above the national level in Math. Both scores are up over last year. Department of Education Spokesman Tom Butler credits teachers for the increase.

Its a direct result of the hard work of our teachers. Theyre doing a phenomenal job of preparing our students and making sure theyre able to progress to different grade levels and succeed in life, said Butler.

Individual scores will be released to parents online Friday.
