Florida Leaps Ahead With School Choice
By Matthew Robinson
The Week of June 18, 2001 Phones are ringing off the hook in Florida schools. Waiting lists reach into the hundreds for classes designed for a few dozen. Schools that were once beyond the reach of low-income parents are now competing to educate those children most in danger of being left behind: special education kids. Welcome to the world of the McKay scholarships (named for Republican Florida Senate President John McKay, who is the parent of a disabled child). Welcome to the land of vouchers. "This is the Big Bang of school choice," said Patrick Heffernan, Ph.D., president of Floridians for School Choice. "It occurred deep in the universe and it is expanding. This is the most parent-friendly school choice ever. If parents are not happy with the progress of their children, they can find another school." The program has opened the door for 340,000 Florida students who will now be eligible to attend any school their parents choose. But now he has found a home at the 34-student S. L. Jones Christian Academy.

Vouchers proposed for disabled students
The legislation would grant private school tuition aid to some students with special needs.
By SHELBY OPPEL TALLAHASSEE In the final, frenzied week of the legislative session, a powerful state senator is quietly pushing a measure that could add thousands of students to Florida's controversial school voucher program. The plan, sponsored by Sen. John McKay, R-Bradenton, would grant private school tuition vouchers to some students with learning disabilities and other special needs. About 61,000 "special needs" students attend public schools in Pinellas, Pasco, Hillsborough, Citrus and Hernando counties. Statewide, close to 350,000 students qualify for the "special needs" label, which extends to students who are mentally and physically handicapped, speech impaired and autistic, among other disabilities. Students would be eligible for vouchers if they fail to improve at their public school, regardless of whether the school receives a poor grade from the state.

The primary objective of this unit is to sensitize both students and teachers to special education students and their needs and their rights. Many regular education students and teachers have had limited contact with special education students. They have very little understanding of the various handicaps of children with special needs. The information and activities in this unit will help Non-handicapped students get past their misconceptions and misunderstandings about children with handicaps. Teachers must help their students to understand and accept their peers with special needs. Teaching students about the various disabilities the other students have will foster an understanding of students with special needs. It is ignorance about disabilities and handicaps that breeds fear. Through education, non-handicapped students will learn to respect and understand the handicapped students as individuals. The second objective of this unit is to help the mainstreamed child with special needs to feel comfortable, accepted and confident in his or her classroom.

Under the plan, the special-needs students could transfer to private schoolssecular or religiousif the students fail to make adequate progress toward their individual educational goals in the public schools. Governor Jeb Bush is expected to sign the legislation, which was sponsored by Republican Senator John McKay. In the state's Opportunity Scholarship Program, vouchers are school-based and triggered when a school has been designated as failing for two consecutive years. By contrast, in the new program for disabled students, vouchers are student-based and would be triggered when a student fails for two years to meet the goals specified in his or her Individual Education Plan. Although the original 1999 Opportunity Scholarship law approved a trial of vouchers for disabled students in Sarasota County, McKay's bill expands that trial to a statewide program where vouchers could be worth up to $25,000 per student per year.

The Education Reform Subcommittee today heard testimony on several special education-related issues, including innovative programs that enhance parental choice in special education. This is the third in a series of hearings to lay the groundwork for reform and reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, which House Republicans hope to pass through Congress this year. Several states have taken the lead in finding innovative approaches to improving special education and giving more options to parents with special needs children. Florida, for example, last year launched a program that provides education choice for parents of disabled students. The McKay Scholarships are available to parents who want to ensure that their special needs children receive a quality education. According to Education Week , Florida education officials received more than 14,000 inquiries from interested parents in the first few months of the McKay program’s existence.
