EDUCATION

As U.S. Senator, Governor Scott will continue to fight for a more accountable, accessible educational system that prepares students for college and careers.  Join our team today.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Governor Scott and his wife, Ann, both benefitted from public education, so they understand the important role that education plays in ensuring students can grow and achieve. Since his first day in office, Governor Scott has been on a mission to provide all Floridians with a world-class quality education, and today, the results speak for themselves. Throughout his time in office, Governor Scott has:

  • Made historic investments in early education, K-12 public schools, colleges and universities, and quality school choice programs;
  • Secured the first statewide teacher pay raise in Florida history;
  • Prioritized initiatives that ensure all teachers have the tools they need and that students are prepared for college and careers upon graduating from high school;
  • Held the line on tuition and fees;
  • Lowered the cost of the Florida Prepaid College Savings Plan for parents who want to save money for their children’s education and expanded Bright Futures Scholarships to cover summer courses;
  • Expanded online courses and degree programs; and
  • Prioritized workforce and career readiness.

Governor Scott also believes that every student in Florida has the right to learn in a safe environment, and every parent has the right to send their kids to school knowing that they will return safely at the end of the day. Following the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School this February, Governor Scott called emergency meetings with experts in law enforcement, education and mental health and passed major legislation to make Florida schools safer, provide more funding for mental health services, and keep guns out of the hands of mentally ill and dangerous individuals.

As U.S. Senator, Governor Scott will continue to fight for a more accountable, accessible educational system that prepares students for college and careers. Governor Scott will also continue to fight to keep school and students safe as a United States Senator and will do everything he can to ensure the nation responds to public safety issues like it was done in Florida – quickly and effectively.
