Erika and Shawn welcome the Chairman of the Florida State Senate Education Committee Manny Diaz, Jr. to the podcast! Together, they talk about the big education issues in Tallahassee this session. First, they discuss the Family Empowerment Scholarship which is designed to help low-income families attend an eligible private school of choice and reduce the FTC Scholarship waitlist. Is this just the first step? Next, they talk about Alternate Charter School Authorizer (SB 1470). Shouldn't you be able to replicate your charter if it has proven itself in the state? What are the impediments to School Choice quality? It's an exciting time in Florida for parental empowerment and school choice! Find out more about these issues and much more on this episode of The School Choice Movement Podcast!
