One of Florida’s top education reporters has taken a job with the non-profit group that oversees a scholarship program for low-income students.
Tampa Bay Times reporter Ron Matus is now the assistant director of policy and public affairs at Step Up For Students, according to The Gradebook.
Step Up for Students is the Tampa-based group that administers the state’s tax credit scholarships. Businesses earn tax credits for funding scholarships for low-income students at private schools.
Matus will help write the group’s redefinED blog.
