Scott believes that the best way to ensure that every child in Florida has an excellent education is through fair funding and measurable standards. The best way to continue ensuring our schools are reaching for excellence in education is to set goals and then help them reach those goals. This does not mean that the state government should be dictating every tiny detail of district operation, but rather helping struggling districts achieve specific goals by applying strategies used by successful districts to their operations. Scott and Susie's children have attended public school, home school and private school. Scott will do what he can to make sure that as many parents as possible in Florida will have choices as how to best educate their children.
