In a few short weeks in office, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has set the education world abuzz with a series of proposals to change the state’s approach to schooling.
He wants to overhaul the standards, saying they rely too closely on the Common Core.
He’s called for eliminating the waiting lists for state funded private-school scholarships.
He recommended a new model for teacher performance pay bonuses. And that’s not all.
Reporters Emily Mahoney and Jeff Solochek discuss the governor’s announcements, the needed next steps, and the impact they could have if everything happens according to his playbook.
