Deadly School Shooting In Parkland COMPLETE COVERAGEPHOTOS

TALLAHASSEE (CBS4) – South Florida fourth and eighth graders help the state earn high marks when it comes to reading skills, but it looks like they have to do little more homework when it comes to math.

According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress report released Thursday, eighth graders in the state ranked second, and fourth graders ranked 13th, in reading proficiency standards.

Florida’s math standards rank 15th for fourth grade and 26th for eighth grade.

State Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson said Florida set a high bar early on for reading standards. The state also has recently updated its math standards but not all of those changes were captured by the national report.

It compares how state measurements of student achievement compare to national proficiency standards.
