Parents are protesting. School Districts are petitioning. Teachers are frustrated and now the state legislature is getting involved. The issue: the state of Florida’s school accountability and testing infrastructure. A model put in place 15 years ago has been experiencing frequent change during the past several years, and now lawmakers, and the Department of Education are asking the same question: which tests are really necessary? We speak with Senator John Legg, about the future of public education, and what he sees as some of the big issues in education lawmakers will address during the upcoming legislative session.
Guest: Sen. John Legg, R-Lutz
