Rick Scott’s a Sitting Duck on Parent Trigger | Scathing Purple Musings

Rick Scott’s a Sitting Duck on Parent Trigger | Scathing Purple Musings:


Rick Scott’s a Sitting Duck on Parent Trigger

Rick Scott has not yet earned the trust of Florida public school teachers and advocates. His increase in funding last year was only a return to the level he cut the year before and his failure to admit as much continues to be a drag on his credibility. Scott’s  proposal to raise teacher salaries can only been considered as a cynical political ploy unless it emerges without any legislative merit pay strings attached.
Like other republican rock star governors who were on board with Jeb Bush’s Common Core State Standards (CCSS) gambit, he was blindsided by the sudden  and vigorous opposition from the RNC and conservative media giants like Michelle Malkin and Glenn Beck. It will have wide-ranging ramifications for future policy decisions – including Parent Trigger.
You can be sure that Scott is aware of the affects that implementation of CCSS will have on the state’s schools.
