Like President Trump, Florida Governor Rick Scott keeps winning, and winning big.
Scott’s latest win is in education as the U.S. News & World Report has ranked Florida as being the best state for higher education.
Of course, Gov. Scott took a bow, why wouldn’t he?
Great news- FL is ranked first in the nation for higher education. We have made major investments in our higher education system while holding the line on tuition to fully prepare students for a great job after graduation. https://t.co/ZHZIZ8r87p

After all, Florida’s education system is inextricably tied to the robust economy and jobs growth that the state has experience since Scott took office.
“It is great news that Florida has again ranked first in the nation for higher education. Over the past seven years, we have made major investments in our higher education system and challenged colleges and universities to become more affordable while fully preparing students to be ready for a great job upon graduation. A leading higher education system helps strengthen our state as the best place for families, students and job creators to succeed. We will continue to work together to hold the line on tuition and support our state colleges and universities so families and students can continue to achieve their dreams in Florida.”–Gov. Rick Scott
