Education

The Florida House has approved a plan to give bonuses to teachers and principals.  But critics take issue with handing out money based on test scores that are sometimes decades old.


During the 2012-2013 school year, some high school students in Broward County started looking into public access to public meetings as part of a class project — “Democracy in Action” — that almost became state law.

SIDS, or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, has long been the sad epitaph to explain the unexplainable: the inexplicable death of otherwise healthy babies. Improvements in health care and education have pushed SIDS out of the headlines in recent years, but researchers continue their efforts to better understand and ultimately end SIDS in our lifetime.  

U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos visited Florida International University on Thursday, as part of a tour through educational institutions in Miami.

DeVos will be also visiting three elementary schools in Miami - the private Christian Academy for Reaching Excellence or CARE, the Sports Leadership and Management charter school or SLAM, and Royal Palm Elementary School, an “A” grade public school. She will be in the area until Friday.
