F = Falsehood

In Florida administrators and teachers at one failing elementary school tell students that "F" grades are positive.

For Jeremy Hunter, the F-grade given to Mollie E. Ray Elementary this past spring does not mean the school is failing.

The 11-year-old fifth-grader said it stands for fantastic or fun. . . .

Clad in navy shirts with "F = Fantastic" printed on the back, Mollie Ray teachers said they plan to reinforce that message throughout the year as they work to improve test scores. The northwest Orlando school is among 10 statewide that received failing grades for the second time in four years.
