Newly-Elected FL Gov. Ron DeSantis Issues Executive Order Eliminating Common Core From Florida Schools

Newly-elected Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced Thursday at a news conference that he is issuing an executive order to completely eliminate ‘Common Core’ from Florida schools.

Governor DeSantis said, “One of the things we would constantly hear about on the campaign trail is frustration from parents with Common Core and the testing.”

DeSantis said he wants to streamline standardized testing, increase literacy and make civics a priority in schools.

“Let’s get this right,” DeSantis said. “We want high quality, we want to demand excellence.”

“When you complained about Common Core, I heard you. I told you I would do something about (it), and today, we’re acting to bring those promises into reality.”

Florida is the fifth state to eliminate Common Core from schools.
