Failure Factories

You may have seen the Tampa Bay Times’ investigation of 5 Pinellas schools the Times labelled “Failure Factories.”   And if not here it is:

Three Times’ writers investigated the schools in South St. Pete, and found that years of neglect had turned them into some of the worst in Florida.

The upside is, this drew national attention, and all of a sudden things are being done to try and fix the problems.. One of those writers, Lisa Gartner discusses the investigation. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
