Florida's third grade reading test results came out Friday, giving students, parents and teachers the information they've been waiting for on the gatekeeper test. The results play a key role in whether students move on to fourth grade. In today's podcast, reporter Jeff Solochek and Tom Tobin talk about the data, which came out without advance notification, as well as the veto pressure being placed on Gov. Rick Scott over the education budget and conforming bill. Reporter Claire McNeill also talks about the Bright Futures scholarship as it turns 20 and faces a new set of challenges.
