    If a fella’s ignorant AND greedy it’s SO much easier to deny sustenance to the hungry, education to the young, and healthcare to the poor. SO much easier…

    I heard that Gov. Scott’s administration is moving to make it harder for those tasked to help people understand how to use the ACA. It was also said that pamphlets meant to help people learn about the ACA and how to use it and how to contact people to help them use the ACA to their best advantage will not be displayed publicly and people will have to ask for them in order to get them.
    Is this true?
    Curiously,

    The TEA party is anti common core

    Yes, the Tea Party thinks Common Core comes from Obama (it doesn’t) or the federal government (which it also doesn’t) or that it specifies what books kids are to read (which it also doesn’t). The problem with the Tea Party is that most of what they hate is false outrage at false stories manufactured by the right-wing entertainment complex. So they destroy good programs that would improve their own lives.

    Now we have the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, the FCAT, and have had it for about 15 years.
    More than 40 states have adopted Common Core, which is a more rigorous test that is supposed to decide whether students get promoted, whether teachers keep their jobs, or whether schools stay open or not.
    Gov Scott was worried about having a National standard test.
    He threw out the tests used by Common Core in other states, and started over.
    There is now no test, and the program starts in 2014.
    So now do you think businesses are going to move here with such uncertainty in the education system?
    Republicans can take any idea and screw it up.

    The more the federal goverment gets involved in education the stupider our kids seem to become…. Maybe we should try something different there.

    Oh?
    “Test scores are not declining — I think they’re at their highest point in history. High school graduation rates are at their highest point in history, and dropout rates are at their lowest point in history. If you started out with those as your premise, people would say, ‘Wow, our schools are doing a great job.’”
    —Diane Ravich, appointed by George HW Bush and Bill Clinton.

    Whatever happened to teach the kids what they need to know to get from point A to point B and to think for themselves? Oh right PC and Obama!

    @Nancy

    No, the biggest threats to kids learning to think are over-reliance on tests (See No Child Left Behind, from Bush II) and the “three Rs” advocates who favor rote learning over exploratory and experiential learning — which research shows work better.

    Been trying for over a year to get Florida Children’s and Family Services folks to correct my mom’s case file. Our LAWYERS, her rest home management (she’s 101 years old), and I, have been totally unable to reach them, which is exactly how their idiot “governor” intended!! The gators may be the smartest, and the Burmese pythons the least destructive, “life forms” in Florida! (definitely regarding the “governor’s” staff!!)

    “Unable to lie away what they say libigots like Morin can only peddle obscene grade school insults against anyone who won’t kneel to his master Prince Barry.”

    You mean grade school insults such as “libigots” and “Prince Barry”?
