Controversial data on Florida’s school teachers are now public after a legal battle last year. 

The state Department of Education has released the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) scores for 4th through 10th grade reading, math and science, as well the results from this year’s end-of-course exams in algebra 1, geometry, biology 1 and U.S. history.

According to the state’s data, only about half of the Duval County students who took the tests scored a 3 or above, roughly the same percentage of students who were proficient last year.

High school students who took the end of course exams fared much better than students last year.
