Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Ends ‘Common Core,’ Embraces ‘Common Sense’

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Ends ‘Common Core,’ Embraces ‘Common Sense’

Ultimately, the state “rebranded” the Common Core as the Florida Standards.

In his order, DeSantis instructed the state education commissioner to complete a review of the Florida K-12 academic standards for English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics and submit it to the governor with recommendations for revisions by January 1, 2020.

Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran said DeSantis “has proven once again that he is the Education Governor.”

Today, I’m pleased to announce my support for the Florida Civics and Debate Initiative with The Marcus Foundation to provide opportunities for Florida students to debate issues related to American civics.

Changes to the curriculum will include a civics literacy examination for all high school seniors and a recommended reading list that includes America’s significant foundational documents.
