Florida Forging Own Path in Education

Florida Governor Rick Scott wants Florida to forge its own path when it comes to education.

The state considered joining 45 other states across the nation in adopting new national assessment standards known as common core.

The State Board of Education has spent the last several months building off the national standards to come up with its own format.
"We want Florida standards, not national standards. We don't need federal government telling us how to run education," said Governor Rick Scott

Florida Education Commissioner Pam Stewart unveiled nearly 100-recommended changes for English and math.

They include adding cursive writing back into the mix, along with 52-calculus standard additions.
