Education commissioner resigns

I’m testing posting here from my phone, and so I’ll use the big news of the day for this practice run. Florida education commissioner suddenly resigns. My initial reaction is that this is not a good thing. Education in Florida stands a good chance of sliding downhill. The question here is, how far down will it go?

    Maybe he doesn’t want to be a part of putting religion in Florida’s science classes. :/

    Florida teachers were already among the lowest paid education professional in the country. With the bill headed to Gov. Scott’s desk matters will get worse. Teacher retention will almost certainly suffer. I personally know several very skilled science teachers who took early retirement rather than face the coming changes. These outstanding educators had all planned to be in the system for another 5+ years. Their loss was a great misfortune–including for my daughter who was looking forward to having one of these legendary teachers for her senior year of Chemistry.

    So, perhaps Commissioner Smith decided to get out before all these school reform chickens come home to roost.
