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.

CONFUSION:   Pelosi Says Constitution Spells Out ‘Two Co-Equal Branches’ Of Government

No Nancy. No.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must be taking night classes at the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Government.

Pelosi, the 79-year-old third-highest ranking official in the U.S. government, was speaking to the Center for American Progress today when she mistakenly said there are “two co-equal branches” of government, before correcting herself to say there are three.

Watch:

“First of all, let me just say, we take an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said.

“Democrats take that oath seriously, and we are committed to honoring our oath of office. I’m not sure that our Republican colleagues share that commitment, and I’m not sure that the president of the United States does, too,” she claimed.

“So, in light of the fact that the beauty of the Constitution is a system of checks and balances— two co-equal branches— three co-equal branches of government,” she corrected with a laugh.

“A check and balance on each other,” she continued. “Con— Constitution spells out the pri— pa, uh, the duties of Congress and one of them is oversight of the president of the United States, another one of them is to impeach the president of the United States,” Pelosi said.

In November, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied supporters on Facebook to pitch in and help Democrats take back “all three chambers of Congress.”

“…the Progressive movement works and it wins in all districts…If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress– three chambers of government…,” she said during the virtual appearance.

She clarified that she meant the “presidency, the Senate and the House.”

According to the Constitution, the three branches of government are the legislative, executive and judicial.
