Education

  • The Florida Constitution says that education for our children is paramount.  

  • Florida Ranks 45th in State Education Funding. We are ranked in the bottom percentile with Ark., LA., Miss., and WVA.

  • Florida Ranks 48th in the nation in funding for teachers. 

  • As your next State Senator, I will work to increase funding for public schools and teachers’ salaries with a goal to reach the top ten percentile over the next decade. 

  • In addition, I will hold non-public schools that receive public funding accountable to the same standards as public schools.
