House speaker's words strike controversy with public schools

House speaker's words strike controversy with public schools

The legislation cooked up by Corcoran and signed into law by Scott micromanages public schools and starves them financially.

"It's going to be a profit boom for charter schools, and it's going to hasten the demise of traditional public schools", said state Sen. It says the bill's "groundbreaking reform policies" will benefit all students. It is so gratifying to me as a not-for-profit governing board member to see dollars actually following the student.

The governor of Florida is coming to CT next week to lure business back to his state. The program would allow charter schools with proven track records to open schools in communities where traditional schools have earned consecutive grades of D or F. "I thought he would give this much more thought and have a much clearer idea of the damage this will do", Castellano said. Title 1 dollars go toward programs for at-risk, disadvantaged and migrant students, as well as the teacher loan forgiveness program. To remain proactive, my leadership team has been looking at possible scenarios and strategies due to expected shifts in funding, enrollment projections, operations, and transportation. "We should never be satisfied until all students in our great state have the ability to make a school choice that is the right fit".

The Algebra 2 exam is out in the new bill, more teachers could net bonuses, but they're still partly based on SAT and ACT exam scores. "And it sets up a guarantee for the profitability of the charter school industry in this state by delivering public schools we've purposely ignored to corporate managers we've deliberately positioned for success".

However, state representative Jason Fischer, a former Duval School Board member who helped craft the bill, said schools should get the money directly.

But the scores of protesters, mostly public school teachers and supporters, didnt like one of the bills passed by state lawmakers and now awaiting Scotts signature.

In addition, HB 7069 requires school districts to share their local capital funding with district charter schools.

Scott signed 28 other bills Wednesday and vetoed a higher-education measure (SB 374) that was a priority of Senate President Joe Negron, R-Stuart.

The payoff came Thursday, when Scott signed Corcoran's top priority into law after days of "reviewing" the legislation. Senate Republicans didn't issue statements of support for the bill Thursday, while Democrats ripped into the measure.

"The bill paves the way for every Florida student to receive a world-class education that every student deserves".

Teachers and their union denounced the bill as nothing but corporate welfare at the expense of students and instructors.

"I'm very happy for the municipal charter schools", said Cape Coral City Councilmember Jessica Cosden, who serves as the chair for the city's charter school system, the Cape Coral Charter School Authority.

For instance, it includes a $30 million expansion of the Gardiner Scholarship program for students with disabilities and mandates a daily recess for all public elementary schools.
