Florida hands out millions of dollars to ex-convicts, profiteers, and crooks to tutor poor kids.

People who would never be hired to teach in a public school because of their criminal history are paid as much as $60 an hour to tutor needy students.

The program has no accountability or quality.

The next time you hear boasting about Florida, think of this story. Privatization opens the public treasury to corruption. It’s predictable.

Another step backward for American education.
