(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:
