Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Yankees catcher is new spokesman for school vouchers



Posada Now stepping to the plate for vouchers: New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada.

He and wife, Laura Posada, who live in Tampa, are now the official spokespersons for HCREO, a group based in Florida that favors expanding school choice options for Hispanic children. The couple has advocated on behalf of special-needs children for years and say HCREO is an extension of that effort.

"Ensuring equal educational opportunities for our most disadvantaged children is a challenge we all have to step up to," Laura Posada said Friday, when she and Jorge were introduced in their new roles in Tampa.
