FL legislature expands vouchers. Public dollars going to Christian schools. Please comment.

This link is to the right wing blog that is the propaganda mouthpiece for vouchers. Please take a minute and comment on how ridiculous it is for public dollars to pay for private education.

Oh, and this is more evidence that FL hates its public schools and no one should teach here!

in the John Le Carre/David Cornwell novel Single and Single, portrayed as a Russian speaking English as a second language, who often spoke the words "is a given" to make his point. Well, I think it's a given that charter schools and vouchers have no place in US education but if they exist they should NOT receive public funding.
