Education & Common Core

Education & Common Core

We need to end Common Core as we know it and replace with high state and local standards set by parents and teachers, not bureaucrats in Washington. We want kids ready to compete, not to just conform to Common Core. What started off as a good-faith effort to set high standards has mutated into a program that isn't working for students, teachers, and parents.

Washington is driving the cost of college higher and higher. In Florida we've helped reduce the cost of college for students and families, and focused on degree programs that give graduates a promising future, not just student loan debt. I'll take those ideas to Washington to benefit Florida college students.
