School choice is about a fundamental right for parents to have access to the educational environment that serves their child best. But what choices do parents have, and do they even know what is out there? Erika and Shawn welcome John Kirtley to the podcast! He is the Co-Chair of the Florida Federation for Children. Together, they talk about the end of the legislative session in Tallahassee and the positive takeaways for school choice, including workforce education and the sharing of property tax dollars with charter schools. John talks about the state of education in Florida today and the importance of redefining it. Parents should have a wide range of high-quality schools or educational options to choose from – be it traditional public schools, public charter schools, private schools, or virtual learning.
