Support Florida's Parent Empowerment Bill

Sign the petition below by entering your information to show your support for passing HB 867/SB 862, the Parent Empowerment bill, which gives parents the meaningful information they need to provide the best possible education for their children and the levers to demand real change when their child is stuck in a persistently failing school. Sign the petition today to show policymakers you support this important legislation.

I support empowering parents with meaningful information regarding the education options available to their children because parents deserve:

  • Meaningful information about the effectiveness of their children’s teacher.

  • To be informed when their child is assigned to an ineffective teacher.

  • To know that their child will never be taught two years in a row by low-performing teachers.

  • The right to organize and force real change if their child is stuck in a persistently failing school.

  • A seat at the table when discussing what turn-around option is selected to transform a persistently failing school.

A quality education should not be left to chance. It should be a guarantee for every family and student, regardless of zip code. The Parent Empowerment bill will allow for parents, schools, and districts to work together to ensure that every child has access to an excellent education.
