Three measures responding to complaints about Florida's move to Common Core standards have been signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott.
Scott on Monday signed a bill that will allow parents to object to school textbooks. The governor also signed a bill that bars school districts from being able to collect student data like fingerprints. The measure also bars the collection of information on the political or religious affiliation of students and parents.
In addition, Scott signed a bill that repeals more than 30 mentions of Common Core placed into state law a year ago.
Florida is refusing to jettison standards based primarily on Common Core despite demands from activists and conservative groups. The bills were meant to address concerns that have been raised.
