Executive Order Fulfills Major Campaign Promise
Republican Governor Ron DeSantis announced Thursday in Cape Coral that he will sign an executive order eliminating Common Core in Florida, fulfilling a major campaign promise.
“One of the things we would constantly hear about on the campaign trail is frustration from parents with Common Core and the testing,” Governor DeSantis said.
Exit polls indicate the Republican as a candidate won upwards of 18% of the female black vote on the issue of education, specifically school choice.
Common Core standards cover mathematics, language arts and literacy from kindergarten to 12th grade. The new guidelines will aim to streamline standardization, and increase the literacy rate.
Forty-one other states had also adopted the standards by 2017, though they have been wildly unpopular in Florida and elsewhere.
“When you complained about Common Core, I heard you,” he said. “I told you I would do something about it, and today we’re acting to bring those promises into reality.”
The governor also announced at Tampa Bay Technical High School that he took executive action to make Florida the number one state in the nation for workforce education by 2030.
The Sunshine State is currently ranked 24th in the nation for people from ages 25 to 64 with an associate in arts degree or higher, or with a high-quality workforce relevant certificate.
On Thursday, Governor DeSantis also kicked off the start of “Deregathon” along with First Lady Casey DeSantis, Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez and Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) Secretary Halsey Beshears at Valencia College in Orlando.
The governor said he will 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,” Governor DeSantis added. “We want high quality, we want to demand excellence.”
UPDATE: Governor Ron DeSantis made the announcement reported by People’s Pundit Daily (PPD) on Twitter.
“Common Core has failed teachers, parents, and our children. That’s why I am issuing an Executive Order to eliminate Common Core in Florida,” he tweeted. “We will streamline standardized testing, make civics a priority in schools and increase the literacy rate.”

Thank you. I was substitute teaching in Lake County when Common Core was being implemented. Teachers were going to all day sessions to “learn” Common Core. None of them wanted it, it did nothing for the kids but make things harder and more confusing. In short, it was a disaster. Now if President Trump will do us all a favor and eliminate the Dept of Education, the states can get back to real education.

First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you
do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and
clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a tough time
clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
minutes are generally lost simply just trying
to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
