The Boston Herald reports on yesterday's Boston College and MassINC event looking at the state of education reform in Massachusetts. A transcript of the event will be available on the MassINC site soon.
Meanwhile, the St. Petersburg Times sums up what's been happening in Florida's public education system:
Florida is No. 1 in the nation in vouchers. It's No. 2 in charter school enrollment. It's No. 4 in the percentage of high school students passing college-level exams.
Numbers like these have made Florida the nation's most-watched laboratory for education policy.
The state's graduation rate remains one of the nation's worst. And critics say [former Gov. Jeb] Bush's agenda is fueled by a right-wing ideology that has produced more spin than miracle.
