DeSantis signs legislation expanding state school choice

by ian

In Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill expanding the state’s school choice program on Monday.

DeSantis signed House Bill 1 at a Miami high school while praising the accomplishments of the current school choice program.

One notable aspect of this new bill is that it will make every Florida student eligible for vouchers to attend a private school with taxpayer money.

Some critics worry the bill will offer more success to these private schools, even though they aren’t held to the same accountability standards as public schools.
