Florida Senator’s Education Backgrounds


Last week we came out with a piece detailing the educational backgrounds of Members of the Florida House of Representatives. This was to help answer the not-so-rare question of ‘Where on earth did you go to school?!’, when reading about Florida politics. In the name of equity, we’ve provided a similar list about the Senate today.

33 out of 40 Florida Senators have earned a Bachelor’s degree or greater. Out of the remaining 7, 6 have attended some form of higher education. The only Senator who did not attend any form of education beyond high school is Keith Perry, and he started a very successful contracting company just after high school.
