According to the US Census Bureau, Florida ranks an embarrassing 50th place in the country in terms of spending on education (per $1000 income). Our elected officials in Tallahassee have made choices which have put us in this position.
"50th No More" is a non-partisan, grassroots organization designed to fight back against budget cuts to our great public schools. We are Republicans and we are Democrats; we are families with school-age children and we are empty nesters; we are teachers and we are business leaders who all value the importance of education in our communities.
Florida's public schools have a huge impact on your real estate property values, your crime rates, and sense of community pride. Our children and our communities deserve better than 50th place. Stand up and let your voice be heard.
