The last thing vouchers are here to do is help poor and mostly minority children!

What happened to vouchers being here to save poor and mostly
minority children from failing public schools, an overblown talking point if
there ever was one? The voucher expansion now allows for partial scholarships
to families making over 62,000 dollars. How many of those families need to flee
a failing public school but instead might want to flee common core or to get a
religious education for their children? My bet is a more than a few.
Voucher expansion has nothing to do with helping poor and
mostly minority children and just look at this years deep cuts to Bright Future
scholarships which according to the federal government disproportionately hurt
poor and mostly minority students as proof of that and all to do with
kneecapping and hastening the privatization of public education.
Finally why is accountability and common core only required
for public schools when private schools that receive public money are exempt?
That should tall you all you need to know about the importance of both those
things to our legislators in Tallahassee.
