The Florida Constitution Revision Commission, which meets once every 20 years, has narrowed the number of education proposals it seeks to put before voters in November. Among them:

– School board member term limits,
– Fewer legislative restrictions on high-performing school districts,
– A civics education requirement for public schools, and
– Creation of a state charter school authorizer.

Reporters Emily Mahoney and Jeff Solochek discuss the provisions under consideration, as well as those that didn't get through to the commission's final round. Plus, a conversation about two lawmakers' wives who are starting new charter schools, and the state's approval of the first Schools of Hope operators.
