(Tallahassee, FL) – Today, The LIBRE Initiative today released a group of bilingual mailers to rally support in favor of H.B. 7069 and thank members of the Florida Legislature who voted in favor this important education reform bill. The mailers encourage Florida residents to urge Governor Rick Scott to sign this bill into law.
The LIBRE Initiative’s Coalitions Director, Cesar Grajales, issued the following statement:
“Right now, too many Florida students are trapped in failing schools that are not meeting their educational needs. This is why it is essential for Governor Scott to sign H.B. 7069 into law and empower students and parents with more options to choose schools that better serve their educational needs. HB 7069 aims to free Florida’s neediest students from this unacceptable education status-quo.
A better education has the power to change the trajectory of a student’s life and build stronger communities across the Sunshine State. We urge Gov. Scott to quickly sign this bill and remove unnecessary barriers to new charter schools so our students don’t have to remain stuck in schools that are failing to provide a quality education.”
