Lawmakers in Florida have adopted a new school-grading system that relies largely on scores from standardized tests in language and math to assess schools' performance. The legislation, which now goes to Gov. Rick Scott for approval, is said to be a tougher set of standards than those the state adopted in 1999. The new system -- if signed by the governor -- would take effect during the next school year.
