Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced Monday that the state is dropping out as fiscal agent for an organization developing tests for the new Common Core educational standards. Scott, a Republican facing re-election next year, says he agrees with many of his Tea Party supporters who oppose Common Core and want the state to drop it entirely. Scott wants state officials to hold hearings to consider whether the Common Core represents “federal intrusion in Florida’s standards.”
