Florida Education System
Discussion here covers the Education System in Florida.
In Florida what is the general policy about education, for instance: age range for children attending school, minimum requirements for secondary level education, teacher qualifications and teacher unions?
Does Florida have a effective Board of Education or Ministry of Education?

School officials dodge accountability ratings by steering low achievers to alternative programs
In Orlando, the nation's tenth largest school district, thousands of students who leave alternative charters run by a for-profit company aren't counted as dropouts. It's part of a national pattern: Regular schools can stow poor performers in alternative programs to make their numbers look better, driving up average test scores and graduation rates. Ref.

School threats multiply in wake of Florida shooting. Less than a week after 17 students and teachers were killed at a Florida high school, photos of a boy brandishing a gun appeared in the social media accounts of San Marcos High School students Monday, raising alarms at the North County campus.http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/communities/north-county/sd-me-school-threats-20180223-story.html.
I really doubt the threats have 'multiplied', as stated. The number and frequency of threats have not increased significantly since the shooting, according to police statements, but people are far more aware of them since. Before the shooting, the accused also published such photos and manifestos, yet no preventative action was taken.
