Education Commissioner

It looks like Gerard Robinson is Florida’s new education commissioner. It happened mighty quick and thus raises some questions about whether anything improper was going on behind the scenes. And where does science education fit into all of this? Nowhere, apparently. There are some mentions of Robinson promoting STEM education in the past, but I haven’t found much. We’ll just have to wait and see how things shake out.

    Thanks Brandon,
    I was wondering what you would dig up about our new commissioner. I am not at all surprised that Scott had a lot to do with the selection. Is that improper or does it break the law? I certainly don’t know.

    Some background on Robinson, and Scott’s comments, can be found at .

    All in all, this bodes very poorly for Florida public education: Robinson has apparently spent his entire career advocating the corporatization of public schools.
