A rally was held at the Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Office on Tuesday April 30 about House Bill 7123 which would allow public dollars to be used with charter or private schools. Under House Bill 7123, sponsored by Rep. Bryan Avila, R-Hialeah, funds collected through a tax referendum will be distributed to public schools and charter schools on a per-student ratio. Hundreds of teachers and supports turned out for the rally, and several local elected officials also spoke. The rally was organized by Justin Katz, Classroom Teachers Association President.
