Yeah, it’s that time of year again. The time when we reveal Florida’s ranking on the ACT Science section.
This year it’s 49th out of 51 (all states including DC). The states behind us this year are Mississippi and North Carolina. Of course, Only 74% of Florida’s high school grads (presumably the strong 74%) take the ACT. In Mississippi, 95% take the ACT, and in North Carolina it’s 100%. So presumably Florida’s average would be lower if our state had a 100% take rate. And then maybe we’d be…oh, I don’t even want to think about it!
Science can’t wait!
