DeSantis private school voucher plan robs Florida’s public schools of needed money

It should shame the state’s leaders that Florida is one of the very worst states for funding public education. But it doesn’t. Instead, the governor and legislature are on a crusade to divert even more money to private, often religious, schools.

They claim they’ll be helping more children this way. We’ll never know if that’s true, because private schools aren’t held to the same accountability standards as public schools; their students aren’t required to take the same tests.
