Is anybody else tired of Will Weatherford demonizing public schools? How about his absurd hypocrisy?

In the Sunshine news when talking about vouchers: “We
believe in choice for everybody,” he said. “We believe in choice for
children with disabilities. We believe in choice for students who are stuck in
failing schools. We believe in choice for people who come from lower
socioeconomic status households. We believe in choice. And that’s why we put
the bills together.”
First this guy can’t go five minutes without talking about failing
public schools but that hasn’t stopped him from trying to make it easier to
open charter schools. You know where children are seven times more likely to be
attending a failing school. Failing is only bad for public schools apparently.
Also have you ever noticed he doesn’t talk about fixing so called failing
schools?
Weatherford also obviously loves vouchers but do you know
what he doesn’t love, schools that take vouchers having accountability. He
doesn’t think they need them and friends I guarantee you if they were graded
the rates at which they failed would be even higher than charter schools.
Finally if he really cared about our lower socioeconomic
households, he would insist on funneling more resources into the schools that
service them, instead he wants to funnel those families into substandard
options.
Choice, choice, choice, failing public schools, failing
public schools, failing public schools, blah, blah, blah, his rhetoric is as broken as his ideas.
