Tallahassee, FL – Americans for Prosperity-FL (AFP-FL), a leading grassroots voice for education freedom, was in attendance today at the confirmation of Richard Corcoran to head the Florida Department of Education.
AFP-FL Interim State Director Skylar Zander released the following statement:
“All students, regardless of income or zip code, deserve to access to an education that best meets their need, and Richard Corcoran has a proven track record of empowering children and families with the best educational opportunities.
