Rick Scott’s education record.

This year’s per student funding
is the highest of Scott’s three years as governor. But it is still lower than
each of the five previous years under his predecessors, Charlie Crist and Bush.
Scott also signed into law the legislation that siphons off school construction
money to privately run charter schools. And the governor’s last two handpicked
education commissioners have shown more interest in advocating for charter
schools and expanding voucher programs than in creating successful public

He also stole three percent of teacher’s salary to
balance the state’s books, ended teacher’s worker protections making them at
will employees, called for but did not fund merit pay and created an odious and
unworkable teacher evaluation system
