  • The achievement gap between Florida’s white and African-American students in grades 4 and 8 in mathematics and reading significantly narrowed between 2003 and 2009. Florida was among the nation’s leading states in closing the gap.
  • Florida’s African-American grade 4 students did as well or better in reading than allstudents in eight states.
  • Florida’s 4th grade Hispanic students continue to outperform the nation’s 4th grade Hispanic students in reading and mathematics.
  • Florida’s 4th grade Hispanic students outperformed all students in 30 states in 4th grade reading.
next generation prek 20 strategic vision
Next Generation PreK-20 Strategic Vision

To change the culture of our schools from PreK to postsecondary by raising the ceiling and raising the floor to better enable students for success in the 21st century.

what success looks like

Graduating students who are prepared for success in the 21st century as evidenced by securing a job that includes a salary that can support living expenses and is in a career of choice.

Clear and compelling evidence shows that the level of the courses students take in high school is one of the best predictors of their success in college and the workplace.
  • This is particularly true in mathematics: Data show a strong correlation between taking higher-level mathematics courses in high school and achieving success in college and employment in high-growth, high-performance jobs.
  • Rigorous course-taking matters for all students, but it is particularly important for students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
