The FTC program has generated a wide spectrum of activity outside of the government to expand educational opportunity for hundreds of thousands of low-income students across Florida. Private schools are increasingly opting to participate in the program, and many of these schools are choosing to serve higher percentages of scholarship students. Community leaders are starting new schools to serve low-income students, parents are marching on Tallahassee to protect the program, and scholarship demand is exceeding supply. Moreover, the program has mobilized millions of dollars in private, voluntary giving, and these contributors remain engaged in the program year after year.
