The Florida Department of Education began its public relations offensive for FCAT 2.0 this morning after a week of terrible media coverage involving the results of the FCAT Writing exam.
The offensive leads with a new web site, titled “Florida’s Path to Success”. The site also includes a phone number for concerned parents to call.
As you’d expect, the web site material focuses on language arts and math, with an emphasis on third graders, the FCAT Writing test and the Common Core Standards in language arts and math. Science is mentioned only in passing.
