Superintendent Owen Roberts resigned from DOE Pam Stewart’s blue ribbon panel Keep Florida Learning . The committee was supposed to review measures to improve student achievement by increasing parental involvement, recommending instructional materials, and reviewing the implementation of the Florida Standards Assessment.
Dr. Roberts gave up hope and resigned. Read the story in the Gainesville Sun. Just a side note. Dr. Roberts is not only a long time educator, he earned his Ph.D. in research, measurement and evaluation at the University of Miami. In other words, he knows testing and evaluation and does not like what is happening in Florida.
