C4QPE is an organization that supports quality public education; but as a 501(c)(3), we are not legally permitted to endorse candidates for public office. In the past, we held a series of candidate forums that focused on education. With Covid 19, we decided to send out a education-focused questionnaire and share the results with our members and friends. Responses are listed by Florida House district opponents and we also sent questionnaires to candidates for US House of Representatives District 19..

14. Do you believe that community members should be able to determine the public school curriculum, e.g., eliminating literature to which they object or adding topics like “intelligent design” in science classes?                                                                                                                NO                                                                    While I support community         i      nvolvement in our education system, our public school students deserve access to a quality, fact-based curriculum approved by educators and the state.
