Why did they do these things? I believe it is at the behest of a rich donor, Gary Chartrand who will do everything in his power to embarrass and hurt DCPS. To paraphrase Dean Wormer, ignorant and corrupt are noway to go through life.
Well it’s not just me who thinks Fischer and Shine, who basically called the district cheats when the it did better than before on the end of the year Civics exam, out of line, it is commissioner Pam Stewart as well.
From the Orlando Sentinel:
Florida school districts that delayed enrollment in a required civics course for some middle school students did nothing wrong — and may have made an “educationally sound” decision for those youngsters, said Education Commissioner Pam Stewart.
Fischer and Shine have never been friends of Duval County Public Schools and they have never represented the people of their districts either. Everybody who took ten seconds on the story knew DCPS had done nothing wrong yet the two of them pushed it. Shameful.
Shine has already announced he isn’t running for reelection, and it’s time we made sure Fischer is out of a job come November as well.
