Gov. Rick Scott wants to hear your thoughts on education



Here's an interesting announcement from the governor's press office today:

Tallahassee, Fla. – Beginning this Monday, Governor Rick Scott will embark on a tour across Florida listening to teachers, students and parents share their ideas to improve Florida’s education system. Governor Scott wants to hear Florida’s education stakeholders voice their ideas on how to improve the education of our state’s children.

“By listening to teachers, parents and children, we will gather ideas to strengthen our education system to better prepare students for college and careers,” said Governor Scott.

The cities and dates of the tour will be announced throughout the week. Also, starting on Monday, Governor Scott will be blogging about each day’s listening tour events at

As the Governor visits different schools every day, a student film crew will document the event on video, which will be posted on the Governor’s Education Blog once the students edit and finish the video. 

Can't wait to hear what people tell him, and how Scott reacts.
