Segregationist Neanderthal 1, Florida’s First Integrated School 0

(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

Make sure to catch this post over at RedefinED by Patrick Gibbons about the racist “founder of Florida public education” and his 18 year jihad to close a racially integrated private school.

You couldn’t make this stuff up, and even if you tried, no one would believe you, which is why Gibbons included a sources appendix at the end of the post. Very worth the read.

    Serious question: Why would you not believe this? This is what America was like in the 1890s, and the government school monopoly did not arise from an impulse to respect freedom and diversity.
