Scott earned his B.A. in English from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in 1960, his M.A. in English from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in 1965, and his M.P.A. from George Mason University in 1982.
For all of 2009, and currently in 2010, the "Issues" and "Community Service" sections of Scott's official website have been blank.  Scott's Republican challenger, Christopher Merola, took issue with Scott's apathetic approach to updating his own web site pages. There is a label on the pages that claims they are "under construction."
