Concerns Over Tougher FCAT
The score students have to earn to pass the FCAT has been raised, at the same time a tougher version of the test is being administered.
Florida's legislature passed new graduation requirements for seniors.
If a 12th grader does not met all of them, they will have no other option than to return next year.
Additionally, lawmakers approved a tougher version of the FCAT and raised the passing score to a level that is on par with what is required to get into college.
FCAT testing begins on February 28th for 4th, 8th and 10th graders.
