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 and publicly supported private schools’ quality, management, cost efficiency. See statewide study on school choice below.
- Adequacy and constitutionality of direct and indirect funding to support public, charter, and 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.
The Education Issue Co-Chairs are Patricia Drag and Sue Legg.
