The Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force met at St. Petersburg College’s Collaborative Labs at the EpiCenter on July 26, the Tampa Bay Times reported. The panel was created earlier this year by Gov. Rick Scott and charged with reforming the state’s higher education system.
Florida’s higher education system should be the best value in the nation, should contribute to the state’s economic success and should be governed with a spirit of collaboration between its leaders, the article described the panel’s vision after the day-long series of workshops. The group is scheduled to present a list of recommendations to Scott by October.
