Who does Florida’s Education Commissioner answer too?

Here is a hint; it’s not students, parents, teachers, or even Rick Scott and the Florida legislature. Nope it answers to a higher Power, dramatic pause, Jeb Bush.  

Kathleen Shanahan, Jeb Bush’s former chief of staff asked incoming commissioner Pam Stewart who she reported to.

 From the Palm beach Post:  Kathleen Shanahan, another state board member who also once worked for Bush, wanted assurances that Stewart "understands with full clarity who she reports to."

Stewart acknowledged that she did know.

Jeb Bush, love him or hate him, and I am in the latter camp, is still incredibly influential in Florida’s education system and it’s him the board and commissioner answer to.
