1300 Florida private schools take public money, only 1 takes the FCAT

And they volunteered to take it.

I don’t doubt many of the kids at these 1300 private schools
that take public money are getting a good education but the question is how do
we know? These private schools lack accountability measurements.
Florida screamed accountability when they introduced the
FCAT, grading schools and changed the teacher evaluation process but for some
reason they give the private sector even when they take public money a pass?
How does that make sense?
I’ll tell you why they do it; public school teachers’ staff
public schools and the Florida Legislature is at war with their
representatives, the teacher’s unions and they are pulling out all stops to
undermine them even if children are caught in the crossfire.  Follow the money, the charter school lobby
and the voucher lobby support the republicans in the Florida Legislature and
the unions don’t.

But regardless on which side you fall on; don’t you
want to know that your money is being spent fairly and wisely?  Don’t you care and don’t you want the
Florida Legislature to care too?
