New AFP Poll: Florida Parents Overwhelmingly Support School Choice Options!
This does not surprise me at all, I knew this from going door to door in the past three campaigns for my position as a school board member.
Parents want their students to go to a good school, the best school available. That has been the message I have heard loud and clear.
In a new poll released today, the numbers are clear.
From sunshine state news:
"73 percent favor allowing parents the option to move children to other public schools while 22 percent oppose the notion. The poll finds a majority of those surveyed -- 58 percent -- support school vouchers while 36 percent oppose them. Almost two thirds -- 65 percent -- of those surveyed support charter schools"
