Gov. Ron DeSantis has signed an executive order completely banning Obama’s “toxic” Common Core from Florida schools.
“One of the things we would constantly hear about on the campaign trail is frustration from parents with Common Core and the testing,” said Gov. DeSantis at a news conference at Ida S. Baker High School in Cape Coral.https://ewscripps.brightspotcdn.com/76/c0/5c9515af4e868bfbca4db62d697f/eo-19-32.pdfAbcactionnews.com reports: https://archive.fo/j1Yy6
The Governor said he wants to work with the Florida Department of Education, as well as speak with teachers and parents about their experiences with Common Core.
“Let’s get this right,” said Gov. DeSantis “We want high quality, we want to demand excellence.”
The Governor said he wants to streamline standardized testing, make civics a priority in schools, and increase the rate of literacy.
Common Core is a set of academic standards in mathematics and arts/literacy that outline what students should know at the end of each grade. Some parents argued the guidelines were too rigid and required too much testing for students.
