A local state representative -one of the freshest faces in the chamber- is calling for a special session of the Florida House in order to address education funding.

72nd District Rep Margaret Good filed a letter with the secretary of state’s office over the weekend, saying that the “lack of adequate resources threaten the education and safety of our public school children.”

After the passage earlier this spring of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Act, many school districts have been left scrambling to cover the new and added costs of adding a school resource officer to every school in the state, as the law now requires.

Good wrote that schools can’t be expected to implement mandatory security measures while still providing a quality education with adequate funding from Tallahassee.
