Manny Diaz says despite their ability to discriminate and practically no accountability, there is nothing wrong with vouchers

Instead of reining in Voucher schools which have so little accountability you might as well say they have none, who are allowed to discriminate and who can hire, take, get rid of and teach whatever they want, Tallahassee is shrugging their shoulders and saying, nothing to see here.


From the Sun Sentinel:


 Private schools receiving taxpayer money through vouchers will likely be able to continue to discriminate against LGBTQ students, after a key GOP lawmaker indicated he won’t take steps to deny funds to schools with such policies. 


State Sen. Manny Diaz, a Hialeah Republican who chairs the Senate Education Committee and who is a staunch supporter of the Tax Credit Scholarship voucher program, said he doesn’t want the state to meddle in parents’ decisions on where they send their child to school.8


“The money goes to the parents,” said Diaz. “The parents make the decision. A parent is never going to put a child in a situation that is not beneficial for the child, and if it is not beneficial, they have the ability to move them.”

Wow that’s a lot to take in there.

Here is what we learned-

He hates public schools, because most parents choose to send their kids to them and he fights against them everyday.

Parents never make mistakes.

Discrimination is okay if parents are okay with it.

There you go, this is Florida, this is us.

I think we deserve better.
