SOMETHING SURPRISING When I was in high school, I went to the Junior Olympics for tae kwon do.
FLORIDA ISSUE Society and the state will not thrive if we don’t find solutions to advance prosperity for more Floridians. We need to expand school readiness and quality early childhood education; support teachers and principals to close achievement gaps for underserved students; and strengthen access and attainment in higher education.
