The goal of the conference was how do we attract more charter schools to Florida. After you are done throwing up in your mouth a little read that again.
Charter schools in Florida are defacto private schools whose main goal is to make a buck for their hedge fund managers than educate our children and our superintendent was part of a panel who wants to invite more to Florida. He wasn’t there with teachers or parents he was there with privateers.
Friends over 200 have failed over the last decade and of those that survived a third have had financial irregularities because until this past legislative session after the owner of a failed charter school took home 800 thousand dollars the state refused to put stipulations on them.
Shouldn’t our super be coming up with ideas to make our public schools better instead of joining a consortium whose goal is to replace our public schools or at the very least shouldn’t he attend said conference on his own dime?
