Coach Bob Sikes wonders if Florida Republicans will learn a lesson from Georgia Republicans.

In Georgia, the Republicans pulled back on a so-called Parent Trigger bill, which would enable a vote of parents to convert their community school into a privately managed charter school.

In Florida, the Jeb Bush foundation and the Chamber of Commerce are beating the drums for the “parent trigger” again, even though it has only been used once in the nation (in California) and no one knows the results. Why not faith-based legislation?

What does it matter if Florida has closed over 200 failing charter schools? What does it matter if half the schools on the state’s list of failing schools are charters?

Why delay when corporations stand ready and willing to make a profit by extracting money from public schools and sending it to their investors?
