Rebecca Fishman-Lipsey and Rick Scott in their own words

Let’s just look at their words:
From Rick Scott:   “With
an exceptional career in education, Rebecca is committed to student success and
accountability, and it is clear she will be a tremendous advocate for all
Florida students,” “Rebecca will help continue to ensure we are
holding students to high standards in Florida and giving them the support
they need to succeed in college and their career.”
An exceptional
career, really? She spent two years as a TFA teacher in New York and then two
more as a TFA coordinator and then moved to Miami where she spent 4 years as
the TFA coordinator? That’s eight years and it hardly seems all that exceptional
to me.
From Lipsey:  “As a life-long educator, I am deeply
committed to what is best for children and could not be more humbled to bring
my experience to the table.  Having worked closely with principals,
parents, educators and students from diverse backgrounds, I know that it is
possible for all students to succeed.”
Life long, um again
that would be eight years and in fact she had quit TFA to start a consulting
company, Radical Solutions. As for being committed to children, her two years
in a classroom hardly demonstrates that and if you really cared about kids you
wouldn’t have joined TFA in the first place as for the rest of her prose filled
statement blah, blah, blah.
This was a terrible
pick from a terrible governor and there is no other way to look at.
