Scott Maxwell, left this little nugget on Twitter today.
Um, how is this possible.
This is money diverted from the public coffers and the public isn’t allowed to know how much and by who?
Now some people might point to Step up for Students, the main voucher provider annual report, but that’s far from timely as their last published one was from the 17-18 year and where it did have a list of donors, how much they gave is suspiciously absent.
If this is such a great deal, why all the secrecy?
I think it’s worth noting once again that voucher schools can teach whatever they want, and take and kick out whoever they want for whatever reason, and their teachers don’t have to have certifications, let alone degrees, but for some reason, Tallahassee thinks that is a good deal. Oh what’s the reason? They want to destroy public ed.
Thankfully some companies as they find out they are funding discrimination, have decided to stop. Also from Maxwell’s twitter feed.
Fifth-Third Bank follows Allegiant airlines and Rosen Resorts — the original company that immediately pulled out, saying it wanted to fund school choice, but would never agree to fund blatant discrimination.
Many funders said they had no idea.
If you don’t know, now you know.
