Jones High School, Orlando, Florida is under attack.By Attorney Ka'Juel J. Washington (Professor of Law at FAMU School of Law)
In the wilderness, the prey gets eaten by the predators. In doing so, the more cunning predators tend to use the element of surprise to their advantage.

Where Does Governor Scott Really Stand on Education in Florida?
