Republicans Sell Out Public Schools, Create Corporate Slush Fund

Republicans Sell Out Public Schools, Create Corporate Slush Fund 

In response to the Florida Legislature passing HB 7069, FDP spokesperson Johanna Cervone issued the following statement:  

“Unsurprisingly, Republicans have closed out the 2017 legislative session with a shameless, massive corporate handout. Schools of Hope is simply a slush fund for charter schools and it ensures that Republicans return the favor to their campaign donors. Instead of standing up for public schools and giving all our students a chance at success, Republicans cut per student funding and funneled money to privately managed charter schools. It​’s just another example of how the GOP has no qualms selling out to their donors.”
