League Whitepaper: Tying the Hands of District Public Schools

April 7, 2022

Members of the LWVFL Education Committee have authored a whitepaper entitled “Tying the Hands of District Public Schools: An Analysis of Potential Consequences of Recent Education Bills.

Here is a snippet: Florida’s public schools are often touted as being the best in the nation. The state’s Department of Education explains, “we work hand in hand with parents, teachers, educators, and community members to improve Florida’s education system for students of all backgrounds and abilities. ” Yet, the 2022 Florida Legislative Session has brought with it a flurry of bills designed to restrict the state’s district public schools’ ability to provide a safe, accepting, educationally stimulating, and rewarding environment.

The League of Women Voters of Florida rejects attempts to use the power of the state to constrain discussion and difficult but truthful accounts of our nation’s history.
