Tag: benchmarks for excellent student thinking standards
At the end of January, DeSantis announced the Marcus Foundation agreed to send $5 million to the FCDI “to elevate civic knowledge, civic skills and civic disposition for middle and high school students through speech and debate.”
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.”
The proposed Florida Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking (B.E.S.T.) Standards are expected to be released in the coming days.
