Re the March 27 article School voucher measure granted a second chance: Our state representatives will not end their determination to further erode one of the best public education systems in the nation, Miami-Dade County Public Schools. Politically funded by Jeb Bush’s nonprofit education foundation and aided by Gov. Rick Scott, they are filling political campaign coffers with millions in cash. What’s the payoff? Destroying an equitable education system and replacing it with a profitable system of charter schools and bolstering those wealthy enough to pay for private schools. This is the classic “steal from the poor to make the rich richer.” Scott and his minions will not stop until every state-funded institution is turned into a money-making corporation that only benefits the rich. If we let this happen, Floridians will lose.
