Political Legends Join Governor to Educated Kids

January 31st, 2008 by flanews

State leaders are making efforts to educated people about the government. Today, Former Florida Senator Bob Graham and Lou Frey joined Governor Charlie Crist to announce efforts to teach Florida students as early as elementary school, about American government. Frey said the subject has been neglected for too long.

When 40 percent of the people in this state cant tell you what our three branches of government are, it gives you a little pause. When our 4th graders cant pick the Constitution out as our leading legal document, it gives you a little pause, Frey said.

Helios Education Foundation partnered with the former legislators. The Foundation donated more than half a million dollars to the effort.
