Gary Chartrand 94% of the Florida standards are Common Core
The Grocer in chief was on WJCT talking about education and below in bold are some of the highlights followed by my comments.
Chartrand, KIPP school is doing great. He didn’t mention how his own rule saying schools can’t drop more than one letter grade protected it from dropping to a D.
Gary Chartrand, 94% of Florida standards are common core. More like 98%
Gary Chartrand, Charter schools are public schools. Um what was he smoking when he said that.
Gary Chartrand, school choice is responsible for Florida’s improvement. He fails to mention how other states that did not embrace choice have also improved. He also fails to mention the 250 plus charter schools that have failed and how voucher schools have resisted accountability and the class size amendment, its like it doesn't even exist to these guys.
Gary Chartrand, teachers being on a one year contract is a good thing. This guy really hates public school teachers.
