Florida Superintendents do not support CRC Proposal 71

Florida superintendents voiced their concern regarding Proposal 71 in January and are disappointed to see it moving forward. 

Proposal 71 seeks to broaden the scope of power of the Florida legislature by giving them the authority to create an alternate process to authorize the establishment of charter schools. This proposal is in direct conflict with the requirement that the system of free public schools be uniform and would create a bi-furcated system of education.

It circumvents the decision-making power of local elected school boards which presently establish programs based upon the educational needs of their communities through an approval process overseen by the Department of Education. By contrast, charter schools are not restricted by these same guidelines – charter schools can build anywhere, anytime, and anyplace regardless of the impact on the limited availability of taxpayer funds.
