Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

April Griffin responds .... through Facebook



Hillsborough County Schoool Board chairwoman April Griffin has not responded to the Tampa Bay Times' requests to speak with her about issues affecting the school system.

But she did make a brief statement on her Facebook page. Under her new profile picture, she wrote this caption: "You can only burn a source so many times. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me 10 times..."

No explanation was given as to what she meant by those 10 times. In a humorous gesture, she posted the photo against a "Where's Waldo" backdrop.

The post was quickly liked by Griffin's friends, including Alan Clendenin, a former candidate for the School Board and First Vice Chair of the Florida Democratic Party.

As always, the Times will provide vigorous coverage of the school system and its elected officials.
