    Another outstanding work of art in the category “Mixed Media (Blog Post/GIF).”

    The next state to pass an ESA gets a Kate Upton boom gif post…

  3. why do you ignore the people in FL who oppose Scott?
    quote: “Members of the Florida PTA, grassroots parent groups, the Florida Conference of NAACP, the League of United Latin American Citizens and the statewide teachers union have launched a campaign against the bill, which they say will drain taxpayer dollars from already cash-strapped public schools.

    Rick Scott — the largest medicaid fraud in the country
    and you trust him with public funds for schools?

    I’m not aware of any governor or other elected official who lacked opponents. If universal acclaim were the standard for mentioning the name of an elected official we would be left with a staggering references to “S/HE Who Must Not be Named.”

  5. when the policy is wrong-headed it is the democratic process that encourages people to speak out….. you cannot silence the parents, tax payers, and in many cases students who oppose the
    system when they see flaws and that is part of the political process; political condensation , then the poliicy has to be revised or new people get elected. Scott is great for building “schools” near stadiums. He knows how to tap medicare/medicaid to feather his own nest. If you like that kind of policy, good luck to you.

  6. I’m fully aware what ESA stands for; it’s a stealth attack on public schools. Education Savings Accounts” (choice vouchers) are the latest iteration of school voucher proposals and are touted by free market advocates as the future of school choice policies and a vehicle for education reform; the policy discussion has been framed as a conflict between parental choice and bureaucratic mandates.

    In some places 70%of the tax payers do not have children and they are not willing to support public education. So it boils down to “the choice to divert public funds away from public schools and the constitutionally-supported choice to send students to public schools. ” a stealth attack… a diversion?
    bait and switch…
    you can come up with a name for it
