Read and Respond: Prepare Our Workforce

A message from the Florida Chamber of Commerce:

Today, Tuesday, October 15, from 5-8 p.m., Florida Education Commissioner Pam Stewart will host a listening tour where you can show your support for increased education standards for mathematics and English language arts in Florida schools. We encourage you to attend this meeting to voice your support for strengthening English and math standards in Florida’s schools. If you cannot attend the meeting, please write your comments of support by sending a short email to flstandards@fldoe.org, or by clicking here.

Who: Education Commissioner Pam Stewart

What: Public Listening Tour for Increased English and Math Standards in Florida’s Schools

When: Tuesday, October 15, 2013, 5-8 p.m.

Where: Hillsborough Community College (Dale Mabry Campus – Student Services Building – Auditorium – Room 111), 4001 West Tampa Bay Boulevard, Tampa, FL, 33614

The Florida Chamber supports increasing education standards and believes talent is the new economic development currency. To remain competitive in a changing economy, Florida’s education system needs to prepare students for jobs of the future. Governor Scott’s commitment to compete with international standards in education while allowing Florida, not the federal government, to develop curriculum and the best testing methods is a big win for Florida’s kids and Florida’s future.

If you agree increasing the state’s educational standards is the right move for Florida, please attend tomorrow’s meeting or email your comments before October 31, 2013.

Help us achieve the goal of making Florida’s education system the best in the nation.
