WNZF NewsRadio featured Chamber President & CEO Greg Blose on a report regarding the Chamber Board of Director’s position of “no confidence” on Superintendent Cathy Mittelstadt.

For example, according to the Florida Department of Education reports, only 58% of Flagler County’s 3rd-graders can read at grade level and only 49% of 8th-graders can read at grade level (and the 8th grade number is actually an improvement from recent years). The list of concerning school district student performance facts reported from the Florida Department of Education continues.
