The State Legislature is currently in the back pocket of for profit education. Government Funded For Profit Education Centers are the direction the Legislature is aiming for. This means that if you have an experienced educator who asks for more money, you fire them. They cost too much.
If there is a cost to accountability, it is not done, as it takes away profit. People deciding the fate of education without any experience in the field is the same as lawyers making medical decisions for doctors. It is a ridiculous guise to advance the careers of several legislators.
Further response to the article: These scholarships will continue, under the guise of lower level students, the private and very soon charter schools will grow. This is the direction that the State of Florida is taking and unless the people stand against it, very little difference will occur. The travesty is that the people still believe that this is being done due to the failure of our schools. The other side of the coin is that the more money taken away from the local school toward a private one, the lower the standards will be at the public school. Its a government ponzi scheme and the public allow it to happen
