"I wholeheartedly believe in school choice and I think our families are very thankful to our state government for the McKay and Gardiner scholarship programs," said Sally Hazelip, North Florida School of Special Education head of school. "All of our kids receive some form of scholarship and it helps significantly with the tuition, and gives families a chance that they otherwise might not have had."
The event is open to media.
