Due an amendment pertaining to the funding of dual enrollment, which states that school districts will have to assume the costs of the dual enrollment program, Miami-Dade County Public Schools has implemented a policy hindering the dual enrollment program. This policy has made it so that students will be restricted to enroll in only two college dual-enrollment courses per semester.

The bill affects thousands of students in the Miami-Dade County Public Schools system negatively, stripping them of the opportunity to push themselves academically. Senate Bill 1514 does not affect all of the students in the Miami-Dade equally however, the most serious impact this new legislation will have will be on specialized programs such as School for Advanced Studies (SAS) and Academy for Advanced Academics (AAA), which are renowned for their academic achievement by providing accelerated classes and college courses as a supplement to secondary education, unfortunately these programs may cease to exist as a result of this legislation.

But the effects of this legislation far exceed the boundaries of the Miami-Dade county however, posing a serious threat to dual enrollment programs in all counties across the state of Florida.

Please support this petition to allow the students of the Miami-Dade county and students all over the state of Florida to challenge themselves with college classes and to improve their lives through a college education.

      Duel enrollment helps many students, not only to further educate them but also help with the expenses of college. Having less classes affects all of us. Education is suppose to be the key importance in this nation but it's not and that's why we are bellow many countries when it comes to education.

      As a current Junior attending School for Advanced Studies at Wolfson, I don't want my college classes/credits next year to be reduced. The main reason why I came to SAS was to push myself and obtain the most college credits that I can.

      Children should have the opportunity to study multiple majors and take full advantage of curriculum at their chosen schools. Our children have a right to be challengd not hindered from trying.
