Today on Context Florida, Julie Delegal posts the third installment in her series on Common Core State Standards, with a focus on Gov. Rick Scott’s “middle step” between the standards and the PARCC test.

Steve Robinson calls Congressman Ted Yoho out for making “the #1 Stupidest Comment on the Debt Ceiling”; and Karen Cyphers makes a pitch for how the federal research slump is Florida’s opportunity to boost jobs and discoveries in-state.

Finally, Pierre Tristam posits that Malala Yousafzai should have won the Nobel Peace Prize this year.  Yousafzai is a 16-year-old Pakistani girl who he writes “is that child, holding that pen, and there’s some wonder in the notion that she’s barely begun.”
