School Accountability and Civic Pride

I'll be out of town and with no internet access for much of the upcoming week, so this is it until Thursday or Friday at the earliest.

Two stories of local interest I'd like to share:

- I realize the FCAT is far from perfect, but this is what can happen when schools are held accountable for the performance of their students, and a principal who works extra hard and cares takes over an inner-city public high school on the brink of complete failure. It's no coincidence the turnaround at Miami Central came in the FCAT era and not in the 1990s when kids were able to pass from grade to grade without learning anything.

- Miami needs more people like Rosa Sugranes.
