Department of Education Unveils Proposed Standards as Common Core Eliminated in Florida

On Friday, at the urging of Gov. Ron DeSantis, the Florida Department of Education released the proposed Florida B.E.S.T. (Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking) Standards for English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics as Common Core has been officially removed from classrooms across the Sunshine State.

These new standards are a result of the governor’s continued opposition to Common Core. At the start of last year, DeSantis issued an executive order “outlining a path for Florida to improve its education system by eliminating Common Core and paving the way for Florida students to receive a world-class education to prepare them for jobs of the future.”

Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran recommended that the State Board of Education formally adopt these standards on February 12.

“Florida has officially eliminated Common Core. I truly think this is a great next step for students, teachers, and parents,” said DeSantis at the end of last week. “We’ve developed clear and concise expectations for students at every grade level and allow teachers the opportunity to do what they love most – inspire young Floridians to achieve their greatest potential. These standards create pathways for students that lead to great college and professional outcomes and parents will now be able to reinforce what their children…learn in the classroom every day. Florida’s B.E.S.T. Standards were made by Florida teachers for Florida students, and I know they will be a model for the rest of the nation.”

“Governor DeSantis made it very clear that we had to reimagine the pathway to young Floridians becoming great citizens, and we’ve done exactly that with the B.E.S.T. Standards,” said Corcoran. “Florida will be the first state in the nation with an ELA booklist that spans grades K-12, the first state in the nation with a civics booklist embedded in its ELA standards, and a state that has dropped the crazy math. Florida has completely removed ourselves from the confines of Common Core.”

  1. YES, BUT MY CHILDREN ARE STILL BEING TAUGHT FROM TEXT BOOKS THAT SAY ‘COMMON CORE’ RIGHT ON THEIR FRONT COVERS. DOES THE GOVERNOR EVEN KNOW THIS FACT??? NO, SO DON’T LIE TO MY FACE THAT COMMON CORE ISN’T BEING TAUGHT IN CLASSROOMS TODAY.
    AND THEN THERE ARE HOW MANY YEARS WORTH OF COMMON CORE INDOCTRINEES THAT WERE SUBJECTED TO THIS COMMUNIST TO THE CORE CURRICULUM? AND THOSE BOOKS ON THE NEW LIST ARE NOT AS PURE AS DRIVEN SNOW. SOME OF THEM WERE WRITTEN BY PROGRESSIVE [COMMUNIST LITE] AND ZIONIST [COMMUNIST HEAVY] AUTHORS. HELL, AT LEAST WHEN ‘THE BLOB’ RAN THINGS WE COULD WARN OUR CHILDREN TO BE AWARE THEY WEREN’T BEING TAUGHT OR MADE TO READ THE BEST. BUT NOW WE ARE FALSELY BEING TOLD EVERYTHING IS OKAY – YOU CAN GO BACK TO SLEEP – TRUST US.
    GOVERNOR RON DeSANTIS IS A ZIONIST AND AN ADVOCATE OF ZIONISM WHICH IS A POLITICAL MOVEMENT FALSELY DISGUISED IN A RELIGION – IT IS THE Nth DEGREE OF COMMUNISM. HE IS ALLOWING THEIR UNITED NATION’S AGENDA 21 SUSTAINABILITY PLAN TO INFILTRATE AND OVERTAKE ALL AREAS OF GOVERNMENT HERE IN FLORIDA ESPECIALLY OUR DOE, FDEP AND DOT. [IT’S WHERE THOSE FLASHING YELLOW LIGHTS HAVE COME FROM ON HIGHWAY A1A THAT TOOK THE LIFE OF 11 YEAR OLD SOPHIA NELSON LAST MONTH IN THE PROGRESSIVE [COMMUNIST LITE] CITY OF SATELLITE BEACH.] DeSANTIS IS ACTUALLY JUST CONTINUING THIS UN-AMERICAN AGENDA BROUGHT UPON US BY THE LAST REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT WHO ALSO DID NOTHING TO STOP IT.
    SO I SAY DON’T TRUST A DAMN THING DeSANTIS TELLS YOU. DO YOUR DUE DILIGENCE AND RESEARCH WHAT THEIR NEW EDUCATION PROGRAM TRULY IS. DISGUISING A WOLF IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING ISN’T GOING TO STOP OUR CHILDREN’S INDOCTRINATION INTO THE GLOBALIST NEW WORLD ORDER’S ZIONIST AGENDA.
