Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Another push for high school majors



Education Commissioner John Winn may be on his way out, but that doesn't mean he's just phoning it in. Instead, he's touring the state to impress upon next year's freshmen the importance of choosing a high school major. He visited Putnam County on Monday, and was headed to Brevard and Volusia counties on Tuesday. Why this week? Because on Friday the final approved major list will be released. Why this issue? "This is a big priority for Commissioner Winn," spokeswoman Cathy Schroeder explained. He wants teens to understand they're exploring their options and not cementing their future, and "the best way to do that is face to face."
