Pam Stewart likes common core so much that she seems to be willing to mislead the people of Florida about it.

She has been commissioner for a
little less than a month and already she has had issues with being honest with
the citizens of Florida.
First she suggested we rebrand Common
Core, which is
controversial and has
brought together strange bed fellows on both side of the debate. But is it
right that in an attempt to quell some of that controversy she direct the
Florida department of education to change the name? The thought must be that if
they can’t convince you to get behind Common Core maybe they can fool you into
thinking it has gone away.
Then she was either deceptive
or ignorant about the price of Common Core, neither of which bodes well for us.
She said she didn’t believe we would incur any additional costs where everybody
else thinks it will cost us hundreds of millions of dollars, which is a pretty
big disparity there.  

I get it she’s a Jeb Bush sycophant
and wants it but is it right for her to be deceptive to the people of Florida.
Shouldn’t she try to sell it on its merits (if it really has any) rather than
attempt to change the name and hide the cost? Don’t the citizens of Florida
deserve to have all the information and not be subjected to misdirection and

Thus far it doesn’t seem like
Mrs. Stewart thinks so.
