Treasurer Loftis Headshot

Chances are by now you’ve already scooped up just the right notebooks and pencils and helped select the perfect back-to-school clothes. You’ve made the effort because you want your child to be ready for success in the new school year.

No doubt you want your child to be successful in life, too. That’s why a new school year is the perfect time to start saving for your child’s future education.

FL Reading List Gutting Common Core

Editor’s Note - Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida has taken concrete steps to rid Florida’s public schools of the colossal mistake we call Common Core. His appointment of Richard Corcoran in 2018 as the state’s Education Commissioner has already produced good fruit, as can be seen by Corcoran’s recently released “Back-to-School Reading List” for students in grades K-12. Donna Garner with EducationViews.org shares this important resource that can be utilized by teachers and parents alike. Pat Daugherty, Ed.D.

Florida’s Super Reading List — Gutting Common Core From Its Schools

I commend Florida under Gov. Ron DeSantis for making great strides toward gutting Common Core from its public schools. Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran (appointed by Gov. DeSantis in Dec. 2018) has released a Back-to-School Reading List for Grades K – 12.

I’m sure by now you have heard of the SC teacher group SC For ED whose web page can be found here: https://scfored.wixsite.com/hope

This SC group of teachers seem to be very aligned with the dues paying National Teacher’s Red For Ed of the National Teacher's Association movement which can be found here:

Local school districts and individual schools in Colorado are refusing to implement the state’s sex ed law that mandates teaching about LGBTQ relationships and abortion, claiming the law is “unconstitutional.”

A report at the Denver Post highlightsthat while many in these schools may object to the content of Colorado’s mandated sex ed curriculum, their opposition to the law is actually based on its violation of the principle of local control of education as set forth in the state’s Constitution.
