Why are there no African Americans on Florida’s State Board of education?
Nearly 4 million African Americans live in Florida and not one is on the state board of education. Now I am sure if Scott were to appoint one they would have come from the banking or health care sector but shouldn’t there at least one black guy or woman on the board? In fact the board is not only woefully lacking in education experience it is woefully lacking in color too, Gary Chartrands , George Hamilton like tan non-withstanding. Only one member banker John Colan looks like his ancestors didn’t come over on the Mayflower.
