There are now more than a thousand students who have tapped into Florida’s newest school choice program.
Lawmakers created a new program to help families of some disabled students pay for their education last year. In a presentation in the House Tuesday, the Florida Department of Education’s Adam Miller says enrollment has doubled.
“As of this morning we had 1,222 students that have received scholarships thus far. We have another couple hundred that are in the queue right now that we anticipate going out in the next couple of weeks.”
