Kids take too many standardized tests.
A child’s growth cannot be just measured with a scantron test over 6 hours.
Kids learn best from teachers who are passionate about their subject.
Schools and districts feel pressure to continuously show improvement, without getting the resources to show that growth.
We can't expect education to be like the stock market and expect a huge return semester after semester, we need to invest for the long term.
School's are funded from property taxes. Lower income schools do not get the same amount of money as higher income schools.
All school funding should be equal because all children are equal.
Per child spending should be equitable across the state.
I believe in higher education, it’s why I love working for UCF but I’m still paying my student loans years after graduating.
The high cost is worth it, but we have to lower these fees and add ons.
Get rid of one time use codes in textbooks.
Textbooks are still one of the highest add on expenses for college. Florida's textbook affordability statutes do not go far enough to ease this cost.
Now textbooks come with one time use codes for online labs and content that can only be bought at retail cost.
Solution: All graded content must be included in your tuition. These one time use codes get around the first sale doctrine. Let's fix that.
Let’s continue to invest in making more degrees available as fully online programs.
Let’s continue funding our faculty in the proper ways to teach online.
Affordable, high-speed access to the internet, with no datacaps, is infrastructure that we cannot ignore.
When one of the main providers of internet to the Orlando area is also the #1 worst rated company in America, we have a problem.
Let’s get Google Fiber to come to more areas of Florida.
