The Florida School Boards Association is leaving the national organization.

In a bipartisan decision, the board of directors voted to not pay next year's dues for the National School Boards Association, citing concerns over "governance, financial issues, transparency, and leadership." Exit from the National School Boards Association will be effective December 1.

This all stems from the state board disagreeing with a letter calling for the federal government to step in and assist with handling threats against school officials.
