In addition to rejecting millions in Medicaid needed by our uninsured and touting supposed security problems in order to hinder the Obamacare navigators from helping provide needed, and lawful, assistance to applicants at Health Department facilities, now Gov. Rick Scott is messing with education again.
He is withdrawing Florida from the group of states working together to standardize and uplift educational standards. All this, of course, is to please the tea party that he hopes will get him reelected. Wonder what corporate Big Education pal they have lined up to take over Florida testing this time?
Poor jerked-around students. Poor frustrated parents and teachers. Poor Florida — if we don’t get our act together in 2014, or sooner.
