It’s About Florida: A Conversation with Interim State Education Commissioner Pam Stewart

The way children are taught and teachers evaluated in Florida’s public schools is undergoing a sea change, and the Florida Department of Education is directing it all. That includes phasing out the FCAT, bringing on a nationalized education curriculum, and setting controversial goals of setting student achievement levels based on race.

We talk with the Department’s Interim Education Commissioner Pam Stewart about the state of our public schools, and what it all means for the future of the state we live in.
