Apparently, Florida’s education commissioner decided that Florida’s C rated science standards, with some tweaks, are just find and dandy. He thinks there is no need to adopt the national science standards like Florida did in other subjects. Bridge to Tomorrow says:
Florida is a leader in the Common Core Standards movement in math and English language arts, and is planning to implement a multi-state examination program in those subjects within the next few years.
However, the state’s educational leaders apparently do not have the stomach to compete with the rest of the nation in science.
While “STEM” is supposed to be an educational priority in Florida, there is apparently no “science” in “STEM”.
Gotta love it. You don’t have to trust my or Paul’s assessment of what was said, though. See for yourself:
