This Commission is formed every twenty years to hear what the public wants to change in our Florida Constitution. The members are picked by the Governor, the Legislature and the Judiciary. We expect that there is a strong partisan group on the Commission who will push for privatizing our schools via vouchers. There is a plan to abolish the separation of church and state clause that prohibits public money going to private schools.
This is a time for you to be vocal. We will get a second chance at the ballot box in November, 2018 when the proposed amendments will be on the ballot. In case any members are hard of hearing, we need to tell them what we think as often as possible.
If you can attend the hearing, bring a three minute speech. You need a speakers form that you submit at the door. You can down load it here:
