REQUESTING FEEDBACK - HELP MAP FLORIDA'S EDUCATION DIRECTION
I have been invited by Florida Governor Rick Scott to join the State's Education Commissioner for a three day "Education Accountability Summit" that begins tomorrow. During this summit we will help map the direction of education in Florida by discussing the following four topics:
State Standards. Continuing to raise the bar on education standards, by including an emphasis on critical and analytical thinking, to drive continued improvement by Florida students
State Standard Assessments. Ensuring the assessment that replaces the FCAT will accurately measure the more challenging standards that will be taught to our students, provides meaningful performance information to our students, is cost effective, results are timely provided and we do not unnecessarily become intertwined with the federal government.
School Grades. Improving our education accountability system to further ensure transparency and fairness while providing meaningful and useful information to our parents and educators about how our students and schools are performing
Teacher Evaluations. Understanding how our teachers are evaluated, ensuring transparency throughout the process and using a fair system to identify,recognize and reward our highly performing teachers.
In order to ensure that I am as best prepared as possible, I'd appreciate you sharing any feedback that you may have on on the issues listed above, the hot topic of "Common Core" or any other topics associated with education.
