Call to Action:
This week the Florida House will vote on HB7055, a massive train bill that will expand voucher programs to private schools with no academic accountability, bypass local control by locally elected school boards by allowing the transferring of public schools to the control of unelected independent boards, create a new accountability measure that will inevitably label districts that choose to send more money on their neediest students as “inefficient”, etc. This bill has now been tied to the education budget in a “take it to leave it” fashion, limiting the ability of our legislators to properly debate and find compromise on these programs and, likely, forcing another expensive special session.
Please call your Representative and urge them to vote NO on HB7055.
Call 855.235.2469 NOW and leave your local representative with a message to vote NO on HB 7055. This bill would spell disaster for the future of public education in our state. We need the Florida House to say NO to this massive scheme to bully our students, our schools, and our teachers.
