The State of Florida has adopted new student performance standards in English/Language Arts and Mathematics, which are called the Florida Standards. The Florida Standards raise the education bar and put more emphasis on critical thinking skills. In English/Language Arts, the Florida Standards increase the focus on nonfiction reading. In Mathematics, students will work deeper in fewer topics. To learn more about the new Florida Standards, visit www.definingthecore.com.
