(2 of 2) ‘Dumbing Down Americuh’ – well, lets start with Governor Rick Scott (R-FL)

Via: Think Progress


Last week, Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) — buoyed by legislators who received hundreds of thousands of dollars of special interest cash — signed into law legislation that would dramatically expand access to school vouchers, which funnel taxpayer dollars into private schools.

Scott is doing this despite proposing nearly $3 BILLION in cuts to public education, meaning that he is essentially transfering money from public education to private education.


On the same day that Scott signed into law his latest attack on public education, Gus Garcia-Roberts of the Miami New Times published a story looking at the case of InterAmerican Christian Academy, a private school located in Doral, Florida. Garcia-Roberts amazingly enrolled at
the school and earned a diploma after only eight days of schoolwork and $399:
