Florida charter school reforms back under consideration

Dec 3, 2015 by

An effort by Florida lawmakers to make charter schools more accountable for their operations — while also removing barriers for new schools to open — is getting traction once again in the state House.

Led by Republicans who support “school choice” alternatives, the committee bill advancing for the 2016 session is generally the same as one that cleared the Florida House last spring but died in the Senate.

With lengthy debate from lawmakers on both sides, the new proposal passed the House Choice & Innovation Subcommittee on Wednesday by a 10-3 vote. Democrat Irv Slosberg, of Boca Raton, joined the panel’s Republicans in support.
