Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Is Charlie Crist taking shots at Jeb's record on schools?



From today's St. Petersburg Times story:

"When I got elected governor, out of 50 states, Florida in K-12 education was ranked 31st — 31st out of 50. Not so good,'' Crist told party leaders gathered at the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference in Michigan on Friday night.

"Last year we went from 31st to 14 and this year, top 10. We're very proud of that," said Crist, who as governor has been little more than a caretaker for education policies put in place by Bush. His highest profile education initiative has been to promote physical education.
