They (Common Core Standards) are “Florida standards that were developed by Floridians,”
If Tuck had any credibility as a serious guy before, he’s now lost it. Pam Stewart’s “tweaks” amounted to a predetermined 15 percent change in standards. The other 85 percent weren’t written by Floridians – and not anywhere near Florida. Tuck might as well have said night is day.
This is pure political spin coming out of Tuck’s mouth and a signal that Florida’s education power brokers will be ramming Core home. With apologies to Nancy Pelosi, it’s clear we will have to implement Core to find out what’s in it.
