DISTURBING: FCAT Scores Reveal Trouble In Palm Beach County Schools

FCATBOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The executive summary released by the Palm Beach County School District for the most recently completed third grade FCATs says it all, and reveals what can only be interpreted as a very serious problem in the county-wide education of young children in the areas of math and reading.

“From FY2012 to FY2013, the precent of proficient students in Mathematics in the School District of Palm Beach County increased from 56% to 59%.”

“In FY2012, the School District of Palm Beach County performed similar to Florida in Mathematics, and slightly lower than Florida in Reading.”

In other words: 41 percent of third graders tested failed the math FCAT. And third graders tested lower in reading skills in Palm Beach County than in many other counties state-wide.
