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:
- Charter school quality, management and cost efficiency. See statewide study on school choice below.
- Constitutionality of direct and indirect funding to support private schools. See LWVUS positions on vouchers and tax credit scholarships.
- Impact of testing and school grade policies on teaching, learning and curriculum.
- 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.
