corporate deformer and test score adjuster Tony Bennett, as his state education chief is holding an education summit without teachers and getting ready to knee-cap public education again! Look forward to a summit without any discussion of enhanced learning experiences for children by lowering class sizes or maybe increasing creativity development or fine arts learning. The same folks who derailed Florida Public Education with mandated test prep, Pavlovian pedagogy, hyper testing and narrowing of the curriculum are in charge of this summit so don't hold your breath for real improvements for Florida Public Schools.
