Making sure our kids and grandkids get a 21st century education is a responsibility we all share. As a father of five children, Steve believes we must equip our kids with the tools they need to succeed in today's competitive environment. Improving our education system is a critical component to our economic vitality, and a key factor in businesses looking to relocate to Florida. As we work to improve our education system, Steve supports:
*Accountability and measurement
*Rewarding good teachers
We have made great strides in the last several years, including closing the achievement gap among minorities, and we must continue on the path to success by insisting on high standards, measuring success and rewarding achievement.
