More Info

Integrity Florida, an independent research institute and government watchdog, is proposing to publish a research report that will examine how state policies regarding charter schools affect the state’s responsibility to provide a high-quality system of public education.  It will report on the effect of growing charter enrollments on traditional schools and how for-profit companies benefit.  In addition, it will catalogue conflicts of interest involving legislators with ties to for-profit charter companies and detail campaign finance and lobbying information regarding those companies.  Finally, it will summarize research on how the performance of students in charter schools compares to that of students in conventional public schools. Our goal is to raise $15,000 to fund this research.
