Changing academic standards aren’t best for our students | Commentary

Angela Schoon, an educator at the R.L. Stevenson Elementary School of the Arts in Brevard County, Florida, voices her concerns with a series of town halls to be hosted across the state to review academic standards. Schoon states, “Our state has some of the most rigorous standards in the nation,” “reviewed and changed… a few years ago with input from Florida teachers.” Further, “Changing the standards will mean Florida teachers will have to adjust curriculum, lessons, and instruction, which always takes years of work — time that can be spent in the classroom.”
