It was a big year for education policy in Florida.

The state changed high school graduation requirements, started phasing out FCAT with tests based on new national standardsexpanded online education options and approved a one-time teacher pay raise.

But as the school year comes to a close, we want to know: What did you really learn in school this year?

Tell us the story of your biggest lesson, most surprising realization or proudest classroom accomplishment.

Are you a teacher who learned to love the Common Core? Did a professor help you understand a subject better? Or maybe your biggest lesson was how to navigate lunchroom politics. We want to hear from teachers, parents, faculty and students.

You can tell us your stories of getting schooled through the Public Insight Network (which, if you haven’t heard of it, is a great way to connect and share with journalists from across the state.)

Or send an email to smack@miamiherald.com.
