Florida charter school reforms are back under consideration. The state board of education shall direct the Department of Education to establish a statewide system for the approval of charter schools within the state as provided by law.
Charter schools are publicly funded but privately managed. The proposal again aims to weed out “bad actors” by requiring charter schools to disclose their finances on a monthly basis and to provide quality learning for their students. Any charter school that receives two consecutive “F” grades would be “automatically terminated.”
