Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) announced a new piece of legislation that will end the state’s use of annual academic assessments that are aligned with the Common Core Standards.
Florida is the “Education State.” Today I announced our plan to make Florida the first state to fully transition to progress monitoring.
No more FSA testing. No more Common Core. https://t.co/hgFjKLfVig

“Florida’s education focus should be students’ growth and how we restore the conversation between parents and teachers in support of students’ growth,” DeSantis said Tuesday, adding:
In this final step to eradicate Common Core from our assessments, our administration is implementing the lessons learned from progress monitoring both during the state’s recovery and from our districts and schools that were already showing how we can better support students reaching their own unique growth goals.
The bill would put an end
