Follow me for a second, they thought the voucher debate for the state was going to be decided right then and there and if the school board voted no then their kids would be thrown into the streets with their scholarships revoked.
It was so bad that not one but two school board members had to explain to them that this resolution was little more than symbolic in nature. That nothing about vouchers being legal or not would be decided that night and would never be decided by them but by the courts.
Where did theses parents get the idea that their children would be thrown out into the cold? From the same people that told them private schools without accountability are better than public schools and from the same people who have been demonizing, marginalizing and starving public schools of resources for years.
I felt bad for these parents, I don’t doubt their sincerity for a second. Sadly however they are being duped by the people who seek to profit off our children by privatizing our schools and that’s both a shame and one more reason we should all be against the way Florida does vouchers.
