This weekend sixty-four college students from across the state of Florida will convene on the campus of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton for the first ever student education policy conference to deliberate the state of public education in Florida and recommend means by which it can be improved. These students, selected through a competitive application process by faculty leaders at eight participating universities (FAMU, FAU, FIU, FSU, UCF, UF, UNF, USF), will study and debate four critically important policy issues:

  • Adding rigor and relevance to Florida’s high school curriculum
  • Reforming failing high schools
  • Reforming the financial aid system, inclusive of Bright Futures Scholarship Program, and
  • Expanding our system of higher education to accommodate increasing student demand and need
