this possible. The state of Florida gave Step up for Students 6.9 million
dollars in 2012 to manage the states voucher program. Step up for Students
then turned around and spent 1.5 million dollars to support pro voucher
candidates who would presumably funnel more money into the states vouchers
program meaning the state would give Step up for Students even more money.And if you just
said “what the beep” then you aren’t the only one.
According to the state’s
own voucher expert, students that attend private schools with vouchers don’t
experience better education outcomes than their public school counterparts which means the state government would rather line the pockets of private
enterprises with management fees (see most charter schools as well) than invest in our
students and schools.
