PolitiFact Florida:Fact-checking Rick Scott's higher education promises before his Orlando summit

Gov. Rick Scott holds a higher education summit in Orlando this week so PolitiFact Florida checked on Scott's progress on two higher education promises.

Scott promised to make Florida No. 1 in higher education affordability -- even though our tuition is already one of the lowest in the nation. Here is our update about his promise.

He also promised to be in the Top 10 and Top 25 ranked public universities. See our update on his progress here.

PolitiFact Florida has been tracking Scott's promises about taxes, education, economy and environment from his 2010 and 2014 campaigns on our Scott-O-Meter.
