Poll: Voters pan most Florida education reform ideasFiled under: Home;
December 20, 2012. “The idea of allowing some universities like the University of Florida and Florida State University to be dubbed as “preeminent” and allowed charge higher tuition was opposed by 73 percent of the voters surveyed.”

TALLAHASSEE – From higher tuition for arts degrees to race-based standards, a new poll suggests Florida voters are adamantly opposed to education reforms floated by Florida policymakers that essentially treat students differently.
Gov. Rick Scott and lawmakers could debate a raft of reforms this spring – including considering higher tuition rates for research schools, and charging more for liberal arts and less for math, engineering or science degrees.
But the Quinnipiac University survey found voters opposed to most of the ideas by overwhelming margins.
Among the results, voters opposed, 66-to-26 percent, the idea of charging lower tuition for students majoring in math, science, engineering and computers, and higher tuition for liberal arts majors “considered less employable.”
