The Future of Public Education Is In Grave Danger!!!
Governor Scott will be receiving a bill that was passed by the Florida Legislature earlier this month.
This bill will be devastating to public education by:
·Forcing the District to share local tax revenue with charter schools, including for profit entities. Next year, this will take $13 million from the BCPS classrooms and over the course of the next five years the financial impact could be up to $125 million.
·Changing turnaround options for public education. This may impact 18 BCPS schools and will remove the School Board’s constitutional authority to manage schools.
·Impacting district-wide Title I programs which serve our most fragile students.
Please contact the Governor and urge him to VETO House Bill 7069.
