Senate Approves Jeb Bush’s Former Lt. Gov. for Top K-12 Job at Education Department

Jun 26, 2018 by

The U.S. Senate voted Monday to approve the nomination of Frank Brogan as assistant secretary of elementary and secondary education.

Brogan replaces Jason Botel, the acting assistant secretary who clashed with Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., over implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act.

Brogan was elected Florida’s commissioner of education in 1994, a gig he held until 1999, when he became lieutenant governor. He then served as Bush’s lieutenant governor from 1999 to 2003. He has also held just about every possible job in K-12 education policy and instruction. He’s also been a teacher, principal, and superintendent of schools in Florida’s Martin County.
