Many Florida Programs Enhance Students' Career and College Readiness
Report 10-56, November 2010
- Florida, like other states and the federal government, has implemented many programs and initiatives to enhance high school graduates' career and college readiness. These programs serve children from birth through high school graduation.
- The Legislature could consider several options to further enhance students' career and college readiness and to evaluate whether current programs are successful and providing an appropriate return on the state's investment. The Legislature may also wish to consider whether developing a user-friendly, one-stop website that provides information about public school performance and public and private school options would help parents in choosing appropriate schools for their children. Such information could help parents evaluate the school choices available to them and make the best decisions about the schools their children will attend.
