Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

So, really, who wants to be Florida education commissioner?

Today's the deadline to apply, and as of 6:11 p.m. the Florida Department of Education informs us that only the same three people we told you about a week ago are in the hunt. 

"But the deadline is not until midnight tonight," FLDOE spokesman Tom Butler said in an e-mail. "The search firm has indicated that they expect additional applications to arrive closer to the deadline."

Interesting, isn't it, so many candidates have chosen to wait until after business hours on the final day before applying. That pesky Sunshine law. 

Butler said he should have a report of the candidates on Thursday. Any guesses who will be on the list?
