Mr. Fischer showed where his allegiances truly lie when he spoke in favor of the parent trigger earlier this week. He has the opposite opinion of the PTA and every other parent group here in Florida and instead sided with the corporate raiders attempting to take over our schools. This however should be of no surprise as he embraced and even ran on his close ties to Jeb Bush.
I however just find it interesting and befuddling that he would come out for a bill that takes home rule away from the people because that is what the Parent Trigger does. It takes the public’s assets away and gives them to for profit companies where they public will no longer have a say in how they are used. Some of you might not be so crazy about our public schools, though Jason Fishers district has some of the best schools in the state, but how can anybody be for giving up local control of the public’s trust.
That’s a question you should ask Jason Fischer.
