LWVF Charter School Study
In 2012-13, the League initiated a study to better understand the oversight of public moneys that are allocated to charter schools and other private educational institutions. The League recognizes first and foremost it is a paramount duty of the state to provide for education and that charter schools, while privately owned and managed, are under contract to public school districts, funded by the public and must be accountable to the public. The League does not support direct or indirect tax credit funding for private schools.
Local Florida Leagues from Miami-Dade to Escambia counties conducted studies and held consensus meetings to formulate the League's positions on school choice. The results of each local League's work can be accessed by clicking on the appropriate location on the Florida map below
Additional studies from Broward, Marion and Miami-Dade counties are underway and the results will be published soon.
