The League of Women Voters and two League members have filed a lawsuit claiming that the constitutional provision to remove local school board responsibility for reviewing and authorizing charter schools is designed to mislead voters. Amendment 8 proposes to limit local school board authority to operate, control and supervise only for schools it establishes. The State of Florida would be able to establish separate public schools controlled at the state level.
The lawsuit spells out the process used by the Constitutional Revision Commission to
draft the amendment. It is worth the read.
Amendment 8 takes the public out of public schools.
