Education

The League supports Florida’s constitutional requirement to make adequate provision for the education of all children that is ‘uniform, efficient, safe, secure and high quality’.

This is an action team co-managed with our sister League, North Pinellas LWV, which examines critical public education issues at the state and local level, use findings to mount educational campaigns to increase awareness among citizens, and engage in advocacy work aligned with LWVF legislative priorities during the legislative session.

  • Capital and operational funding
  • Testing and assessment
  • Charter schools and tax-credit scholarships
  • Achievement gap in Pinellas County schools

Contact Co-Chairs Nikki Fleming and/or Barbara Meloche to get involved.
