Florida’s latest, greatest worst politician, Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala

Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, in a Tampa Times Piece blasted Rep Mia Jones, D-Jax, and other Democrats for thinking it is wrong to give the public's assets to for profit companies for being "parochial."

"It bothers me that we still have that bias [against charter schools] when we have seen so much success," Baxley said.

I wonder if by successes he is talking about the 226 charter schools that have failed over the years and the chaos this has caused so many?  Or maybe it is the fact over a third of charter schools according to an August report by the state auditor general had accounting problems, legal violations or other problems in their 2011 audits. 

Are those the successes he is talking about?

There may be a few great charter schools but what there definitely are is lots of great public schools and its time the people’s representatives started taking care of their needs and stopped trying to kill them by the death of a thousand cuts.

It bothers me that Ocala elected a tool.
