Gov. Scott's daughter has anthropology degree

TALLAHASSEE — When Rick Scott singled out anthropology degrees as job market losers, maybe he had inside knowledge. It turns out his daughter, Jordan Kandah, has an anthropology degree from the College of William & Mary. In remarks this week about the need to steer students towards degrees with better job prospects, Scott said, "You want to use your tax dollars to educate more people who can't get jobs in anthropology?" Kandah did not go to work in the field. She was a special education teacher before enrolling this fall in a Masters of Business Administration program.
Scott spokesman Brian Burgess said today the governor wasn't knocking anthropologists, just making the point that there's a high demand for graduates with engineering, mathematics, science and technology degrees, and Florida needs to meet it.
