Correction: The article orginally stated some misinformation about StudentsFirst and the organizations head, Michelle Rhee.
California is one of 11 states to recently receive an overall grade of F in a StudentsFirst report card evaluating education.
The StudentsFirst report repeatedly emphasized using students test scores to evaluate teachers and decide how much funding schools would receive, but did not consider student test scores in the report. Instead the report focused on how states evaluate teachers, empower parents and allocate funding.
Each grade included a slew of suggestions regarding funding, how teachers are evaluated and increasing the number of charter schools.
