Ask Gov. Scott to Sign H.B. 7069!
Every child in Florida deserves the chance to receive a quality education, and parents have the right to choose the education that’s best for their children. While hundreds of students across the Sunshine State benefit from school choice programs, too many are still trapped in failing schools with no alternative.
Florida’s lawmakers should continue to expand school choice for Florida’s future. Gov. Scott ought to sign the budget, especially because it includes HB 7069. This is an education reform bill that would allow virtual options for home-school and private school students and streamline teacher certification.
HB 7069 would expand school choice programs like the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship, the Gardiner Scholarship Education Savings Account and Schools of Hope, giving parents the financial resources to choose the right school for their children.
Urge Governor Scott to sign the budget – and HB 7069 – into law.
