Lawmakers Vote to Improve Educational Opportunities

By: Brittney Hunt

Sweeping education reforms that span cradle to career were just passed by the Florida Legislature.

In the area of Higher Education, SB 4 would expand the Bright Futures Scholarship and further cement Florida’s World Class State Universities.

This year’s K-12 omnibus bill, HB 7055, continues Florida’s school choice legacy by passing several student-centered policies.

From local business to major corporations, a qualified workforce is a top concern for job creators. Florida wins when we close the gap by putting students ahead of special interests.
