Linda Stewart Wants Private Schools to Follow Same Academic, Hiring and Construction Standards as...

Stewart filed her bill earlier in the month with her office insisting “there are various inconsistencies in requirements for the three types of schools in Florida Statute.” The bill would mandate that all teachers have a bachelor’s degree and would have private schools follow the same construction standards that public and charter schools currently follow. The bill would also “require private schools to follow state academic standards, administer state exams to an eligible percentage of students, receive state grades, and require at least 20 minutes of recess for primary schools.”
