Vitti’s troubling links to charter schools.

I have already outlined his trip to the conference whose
theme was how we attract more charter schools and how he hired a charter school
consultant to work for the district. Well it turns out this charter school
consultant once worked for Eric Fresen one of the most ardent anti-public
school legislators that Florida has produced over the past few years.

Eric Fresen has often voted on legislation that would
benefit his family members who worked for charter school companies and is also
a proponent of high stakes testing. Seemingly everything Fresen has done in Tallahassee
has siphoned money out of classrooms and into the bank accounts of testing
companies and charter school conglomerates.
And I could go on and on, type his name into the search box.
My question is why would anybody who supports public schools
want to have anything to do with Fresen or anybody associated with him too?  
This is troubling.
