Take Action – Call Governor Rick Scott’s campaign about Education!!

Does Rick Scott care about education? Most of the time, no one even answers the phone at the governor’s office. I think the most effective way to get our message to him is to call his political director and campaign. Please get everyone calling and overwhelming the campaign so Scott starts listening to the people of Florida! Our kids need to be his top priority. His actions matter not a commercial of him hugging his grandson. Please send this to all of your contacts in Florida.

Please call and leave a message if no one answers:
Christian Butterfield
(305) 491-2389
Central Florida Political Director
Scott for Florida

I contacted Mr. Butterfield 2 weeks ago regarding education in Florida. I told him 3 supervoters will be sitting out the election in November because of Rick Scott's lack of involvement in education. I got Butterfield's phone number off of an email protesting Rick Scott in Sanford. Butterfield said Rick Scott cares about education and they just have to work on the messaging. He said he was going to have the education part of the campaign call me within the week to discuss the problems with the educational system. I have NOT received a call from them. I left a message for Mr. Butterfield to call on Wednesday and no reply and I just tried again and no one picks up the phone.
Rick Scott cares about education and our children? I don't think so.
Please call Mr. Butterfield and let him know where you stand on education and voting for Rick Scott in November. Issues to include:
1. Kids are learning math wrong so they won’t be able to compete in college and jobs requiring math skills. Many science careers require 2 to 3 years of calculus. If it takes the next generation 5 minutes to write out and answer simple math like 12 plus 13 that should be able to be done in their heads, then how will they ever do complex calculus problems on college exams in the short period of time allotted for tests?
2. Every course requires an end of course exam for teacher evaluations – it’s too much pressure on kids when the tests can be 30% of their final grade. And in Algebra, the kids must pass the state test to graduate – even if they are passing the course, a failure on the end of course exam results in a failure of the course – one test determines all.
3. End of course exams are computerized and should give immediate scores like the GRE does yet kids and parents are worrying and waiting for weeks to see if they pass a course while the FLDOE debates a passing score.
4. To bump up school grades, kids are being placed in AP classes when they don’t request it and not allowed to leave when unable to do the college level work and are failing.
5. End of Course exams are going to be given in every course. So now every teacher will be teaching to a test all year in every subject. Even electives and PE will have exams.
6. High school kids take biology, algebra and US History end of course exams in early May and then have to sit around in classes until June doing busy work because there is no more curriculum to be taught. The curriculum is crammed into the year and rushed so the tests can be administered in May rather than ending with a final exam in June.

Please make the call. We have to make our voice heard loud and clear – prioritize our kids and prioritize education.

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
