AFP-FL Praises Bill that Expands Education Savings Accounts

Jan 21, 2021 by AFP

Grassroots group commits to helping mobilize support for bill that increases educational opportunity for Florida students

Tallahassee, FL – Americans for Prosperity-Florida (AFP-FL) today commended Senator Manny Diaz for introducing SB 48, a bill that expands educational freedom and streamlines the state’s scholarship programs for Florida students and families.

AFP-FL State Director Skylar Zander issued the following statement:

“This public health crisis has demonstrated our one-size-fits-all system does not meet the education needs of every child. This bill recognizes that we need to rethink education, provide needed flexibility for students and families, and ensure more Florida students can access an education that works for them – no matter where they live or how much money their family makes.

“We thank Senator Diaz for introducing this bill that takes us closer to giving every Florida student the tools and resources they need to unleash their potential. There is still more work to ensure every student has access to an educational environment that best fits their unique needs and talents. We look forward to educating Floridians about this bill and mobilizing support throughout the state for this bill that puts students rather than bureaucracies first.”

Background:

AFP-FL has been at the forefront of advocating for increased educational freedoms. In 2019, the grassroots group ran TV ads featuring key messages from U.S. presidents from different political parties that recognized every child deserves a quality education.
