The League supports Florida’s constitutional requirement to make adequate provision for the education of all children that is ‘uniform, efficient, safe, secure and high quality’.

Key issues include:

  1. Charter school quality, management and cost efficiency.  See statewide study on school choice below.
  2. Constitutionality of direct and indirect funding to support private schools. See LWVUS positions on vouchers and tax credit scholarships.
  3. Impact of testing and school grade policies on teaching, learning and curriculum.
  4. Impact of school choice on school racial and economic segregation and local control of education policy.

The Education Issue Chair is Sue Legg.  The LWVFL Board liaison is Patricia Drago.
