Gov. Ron DeSantis seeks to ditch Common Core, find new academic standards for public schools


February 4, 2019

Gov. Ron DeSantis, fulfilling a key education campaign promise, said Thursday he had signed an executive order with the goal of “eliminating Common Core and the vestiges of Common Core” from Florida’s public schools.

Common Core is a set of standards spelling out what children should learn in language arts and math classes, from kindergarten to 12th grade. Florida, with Republicans in charge, first adopted Common Core in 2010 and then again in 2014, after making tweaks and renaming them Florida Standards.
