Florida Coalition of School Board Members Remarks on

Dismissal of Lawsuit against Education Reforms

 

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Today, Leon County Judge George Reynolds sided with the State of Florida in a long-running case against Florida’s education reforms, including programs relating to school choice. The Florida Coalition of School Board Members (FCSBM) shared the following statement on the judge’s ruling:

 

“The facts stand for themselves,” said Erika Donalds, FCSBM President. “What we knew to be true was upheld today. Choices do not detract from but enhance student success.”

 

“It is time to move forward, and keep the focus on our children. Let’s talk more about action than excuses.”

 

The Florida Coalition of School Board Members is a non-partisan non-profit (501c3) individual membership organization for elected school board members and candidates. To learn more, visit www.fcsbm.org.
