“Senator Bill Montford worked side-by-side with the Florida Chamber to strengthen Florida’s accountability system and ensure that students remain prepared to compete in the workforce,” said DAVID HART, Executive Vice President of the Florida Chamber of Commerce.

“I share the Florida Chamber’s commitment to a qualified workforce and a highly trained talent pool. That pool begins on the K-12 stage, which is why it is so important that Florida’s businesses engage in the education of Florida’s students.
