Q&A: Gavin Rollins Discusses His Campaign for Florida's 3rd Congressional District
2020 may be one of the most fascinating election years in recent memory. President Donald Trump is seeking reelection, the GOP is looking to take back the House, and Florida lawmakers are hoping to increase their domination in both chambers.
While the biggest election involves the White House, Republicans across the U.S. are fighting for conservatism in an era where socialism and progressive dogma plague every facet of modern society. One of those conservative leaders is Gavin Rollins.
Graduation rates in the state of Florida continue to rise under conservative leadership.
On Thursday, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that Florida’s 2018-19 graduation rate increased to 86.9 percent, an increase of 0.8 percentage points over last year and a jump of 27.7 percentage points since 2003-04.
“I applaud Florida’s students, parents and educators for their hard work and dedication that lead to these increased graduation rates,” said DeSantis. “While these results are a positive mark of Florida’s upward progress, we cannot allow ourselves to become complacent. We must continue striving for educational excellence and making Florida the number one state in the nation for education.”
