Representative Carlos Trujillo doesn’t understand how democracy works, among other things

With an assist from the Stop Senate Bill 6 Facebook page

Before insulting the Parent Teacher Association of Florida along with every other major parent and civil rights groups in Florida by implying they are run by the teacher’s union, he claimed the parent trigger bill would give parents a seat at the table, that it would expand democracy. Apparently the representative doesn’t understand how democracy works.

The parent trigger bill takes the power out of locally ELECTED school boards and hands it over to the APPOINTED State Board of Education, who will most likely then give it to a private corporation completely removed from the democratic process. What is democratic about that?

The representative is clueless, thinks we are or both. My bet is both.

If you are interested in contacting him here is his number and e-mail address: (850) 717-5105, Carlos.trujillo@myfloridahouse.gov.  Give him the facts about PTA and please explain to him how democracy works
