Andy Ford, the president of the Florida Education Association gave a speech in Tamarac on February 18. He offered strong criticism of the proposed changes to the grading system now before the State Board of Education and said those changes don’t address real problems in the accountability system.

Ford was quoted in a Florida Education Association release dated February 18 as saying, “Instead of listening to teachers, administrators, school districts, school boards and parents, the state is proposing minor cosmetic changes that don’t address the real concerns of everyone involved in public education,” said Ford.

Many people have criticized the grading system in schools. “I really sure what a grade means. There are so many political factors involved,” said Melinda Scott.
