Kudos to the Florida League of Women Voters for their commitment to come to consensus on the role of charter schools in Florida’s education system.
Nineteen Leagues, representing 26 counties, are collecting data and meeting with school officials to gather information on Florida’s charter schools in the following areas:
- Who do charter schools serve?
- Do charter academic programs differ from those in traditional schools?
- How are charters owned and managed?
- What types of facilities do charters use?
LWV Alachua County/Gainesville is leading the study. Research articles are posted at www.lwv-alachua.org.
