Step Up For Students was created to help alleviate the enormous educational challenges faced by children in Florida who live in or nearby poverty. This program provides Tax Credit scholarshop to students in K-12 grade who come from low income families. This program allows the student to consider a private school or an out-of-district public school that may better suit their individual needs, an option which already is available to families of greater financial means. This choice is not based on whether the public school is judged as succeeding or failing. Rather, it recognizes that different children learn in different ways and that our collective struggle is to help the students who often are at the greatest disadvantage in modern education.
