FL Governor Rick Scott Pulling Back Throttle On Common Core Education Standards


I told the federal government we are rejecting their overreach into our state education system by withdrawing from PARCC.-Gov. Rick Scott

That was Florida Governor Rick Scott’s statement back in September 2012, after being inundated with grassroots pressure to abandon his support for Common Core, and the federal education standards testing that went along with it.

Prior to his statement, Scott had signaled that he could have a change in mind over Common Core, as he told the Shark Tank that he did indeed support the education proposal, just not the data mining involved in gathering student information.
