The Citizens for Strong Schools lawsuit comes to trial on March 14. It will be a five week trial for the soul of our public schools.
Southern Legal Counsel, a non-profit public interest firm, is prosecuting the suit against the State of Florida’s educational policies. The suit contents that the state does not meet Article IX of the Florida constitution: …it is the paramount duty of the state to provide: ...a uniform, efficient, safe, secure, and high quality system of free public schools…
You can help. A statewide support group, 5forChange, has been formed that is raising funds and awareness of the issues to be addressed in the suit.
Pam makes the Florida league’s position clear:
“The decades long attack on the Florida public school system by our State officials must be stopped. With support from parents, students and community members, our plea goes to the courts. 5forChange can mean BIG CHANGE for Florida’s educational future.”
