Why in Florida are public school students left holding the (empty) bag.

The vast majority of students in Florida attend public
schools but they are always last to the table. Janet Adkins, Eric Fresen and
others constantly talk about the needs of a few parents they think want
vouchers while ignoring the please of public school parents who say their kids
are tested to much and that their schools don’t have adequate resources, two of
the reasons people take their children out of public schools.
In short the Florida Legislature has created a crisis and
then pointed to that crisis as a reason to allow more kids to leave their
public schools.   
If Fresen and Adkins and the rest of their ilk really cared
about children they would be looking to improve things in public schools
instead of constantly kneecapping them and draining away resources.
From
the Tampa Times: But Rep. Janet Adkins, R-Fernandina Beach, said lawmakers
should focus on the children.
“I know there are many
moms and dads in Florida who feel like their needs for their children are not
being met, and they become frustrated with the bureaucracy that they meet
in these public school institutions,” she said. “Our goal today is
not to save the public school institutions. Our goal today is not to protect
the school enrollment. Our job today, members, is to ensure that Florida
students get the very best education opportunities that they can. Period.”

What about the parents of public school children
Janet? Why do you constantly ignore and marginalize them?
