The latest on Pinellas County's Failure Factories
The Pinellas school district has faced intense scrutiny from two investigations and two legal challenges prompted by "Failure Factories," a yearlong investigation by the Tampa Bay Times that showed how the district abandoned integration efforts in 2007 and broke promises of money and resources for elementary schools that became overwhelmingly poor and black. The schools — Campbell Park, Fairmount Park, Lakewood, Maximo and Melrose — are failing at rates worse than almost any other schools in Florida. Follow the team behind the series as the story develops.
