Tallahassee –  "Florida's Opportunity Scholarship program is an integral part of our effort to improve the education of Florida's children.  As Florida's Education Commissioner, I helped implement the law when it was passed.  I have personally witnessed parents who were excited to have a choice, and a chance, to improve their children's education.  I support Gov. Bush as he looks to our state's Supreme Court to uphold this law to ensure Florida's parents have educational alternatives for their children."
