In 2011-12, the League launched a study of the management, quality and impact of school choice in Florida. The initiative for the study was an outgrowth of the national league study of privatization. In Florida, multiple cases of fraud and abuse were reported due to the unregulated growth and lack of oversight of publicly funded but privately-owned charter and primarily religious schools. The impact of choice and its testing and school grade accountability system on public schools emerged as a critical issue. In 2017, funding for charter and private schools became a legislative priority in the Florida House.
