This state consistently ranks in the top ten because of its relatively strong charter law and plentiful choices. More than 27,000 children with special needs use private schools under a state program, and another 59,000 receive tax credits. A new Personal Learning Scholarship Account holds a lot of promise for parents to really be consumers of their children’s education. The state websites are easy to navigate to learn about schools and all the options available. Florida also is the top scorer on Digital Learning Now’s index for online learning opportunities. While there is no parent trigger available and much work still to be done, Florida ranks high in affording parents power. These expansive opportunities pave the way for higher student achievement growth rates in the Sunshine State.
