BURBANK -- State Sen. Jack Scott (D-Burbank) has been named the

recipient of the College Board’s 2003 Legislative Education Leaders



Scott received the honor Thursday in San Francisco during the

annual meeting of the National Conference of State Legislatures.

bills to create a tax deduction for student loan interest,

fast-tracked the teacher credential process and made it easier for

experienced out-of-state teachers to teach in California.

He serves as chairman of the Senate Budget Subcommittee on

Education, which oversees California’s $50-billion education budget.

The College Board is a national nonprofit membership association

composed of more than 4,200 schools, colleges, universities and other
