Rick Scott Withdraws Florida From Federal Common Core Testing
September 23, 2013
By JAVIER MANJARRES


Florida Governor Rick Scott has announced that the state of Florida has withdrawn from the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) federal education testing standards the state’s Board of Education was slated to implement. I told the federal government we are rejecting their overreach into our state education system by withdrawing from PARCC.

-Gov. Rick Scott Scott has been a supporter of higher education standards, but after increasing pressure from conservative activists from around the state, who have been pushing him to back away from the “socialized education” standards, Scott had to act.

Good.

IF you watched the Barton tape I posted last night, you know they changed the testing requirements to basically make it look like students are testing better than they really are... he is a former high school principle and knows a thing or two about education and history and he showed how since the federal government took over education in America they have been dumbing down tests... and teaching to the tests rather than to actually learn
“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves.” G Washington July 2, 1776
