Last year, Florida State Senators failed to pass a parent trigger bill because not a single parent group in the state supported the bill. Parents came from across the state to testify against the legislation. They accurately saw the bill as a transparent effort to trick parents into handing their public school over to a charter corporation.

The bill comes up for a vote in the next few days. Jeb Bush and his surrogates are working hard to get the bill through this time. Senators have offered a flurry of amendments to try to remove some offensive features.

But Florida parents remain united in opposition to this blatant effort to enrich charter corporations.

Every Florida legislator should read the exposé of the parent trigger that was reported here by Yasha Levine..
