One Florida

An independent review committee said Gov. Jeb Bush's controversial One Florida plan is helping increase minority enrollment in the state university system.

But the panel cautions that there is still more work to be done, and the governor can't declare One Florida a success yet.

After a two-year study, the group said more attention needs to be paid to keeping minority students enrolled in universities.

One Florida has doubled the number of high school students taking pre-college testing and increased by more than one-third the number of black and Hispanic students who received scholarships.

Only the University of Florida has seen minority enrollment decline under the plan. Bush said he hopes that trend will be reversed this fall.
