Among LWV Florida’s positions on education are:
– Support adequate funding for public education, and no use of public funds for the expansion of charter schools through a voucher program
– Support stronger local district control over charter schools that includes greater fiscal management and accountability.
– Support a statewide assessment and accountability system that provides the same data at appropriate intervals to measure student progress for all schools that receive public funds, directly or indirectly.
