The father of a student shot and killed during the Parkland school massacre has been appointed to the state Board of Education, Gov. Rick Scott announced Friday evening.

For 52-year-old Andy Pollack, it is all about accountability.

“That word has haunted me since my daughter was murdered,” Pollack, of Coral Springs, said Friday night.

His daughter, Meadow, 18, a senior, was shot nine times during the Valentine’s Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Meadow’s body was found in a third-floor hallway. She was lying on top of the body of 14-year-old freshman Cara Loughran, as if protecting her.

Pollack’s term on the board began Friday and ends Dec. 31, 2022. The appointment is subject to confirmation by the Florida Senate.

Ex-student Nikolas Cruz has confessed to killing 17 and wounding another 17 that day.

“What I hope to accomplish is accountability at a local level, to hold school boards accountable and superintendents accountable,” Pollack said.

That is a mighty tall order.  I wish him well.



I cannot imagine the pain of losing a child in such a way.  The dangerous farce that signs on buildings and cowards and cowardly acts and depriving others of God-given rights can stop evil when it decides to turn murderous MUST end.
Irrumabo!  GOP? - Nope. No more. They made their bed, now let them die in it.*

I can't imagine losing a child to any method. I came close and that's all I want.
