Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Your turn to weigh in on the common core standards



The Florida Board of Education adopted the national common core standards for math and language arts back in the summer. Then some committees set about adding some Florida-specific content to build upon the base.

Among other things, the recommendations aim to increase the level of rigor in studying various types of literary texts, and to expand upon the math formulas learned at key grade levels.

All the additional benchmarks are now up for review. Here's a summary of what's in there. Then you can submit your comments here. The deadline is Dec. 6. Have fun.
