Getting Involved in Education

Today, Florida’s State Board of Education met to discuss a number of important education policies and issues. Their discussions centered on things such as integrating more digital content into our classrooms and turning around our lowest performing schools. (The complete agenda can be found at http://www.fldoe.org/board/meetings/2011_02_15/agenda.asp). As the governing body and the voice of our education system, our State Board members are tasked with asking difficult questions and making decisions that are solely focused on student success. The involvement of our Board members in the educational process is critical, as is the participation of so many of you. Getting involved and staying involved are just two ways you can make a positive impact on our students. If you are not already engaged in education in your local area, I ask that you make a commitment to do so today. Florida’s education system depends on each and every one of us to make that difference.
