Looking for something else, I recently surfed to a page on the Florida Department of Education web site. What I found there — taxpayer funded links to some of the most notorious right-wing, anti public education organizations — made realize how fortunate we are that Tony Evers defeated Rose Fernandez, that we dodged that bullet.
Center for Education Reform MT.
Milton and Rose D. Friedman Foundation, MT.
Other organizations being promoted by the Florida Department of Education include School Choice Wisconsin and those friends of Rose Fernandez, the Florida Coalition of Virtual School Families, K12 inc, and Connections Academy (here and here for connections to Fernandez).
We should all be grateful to the voters of Wisconsin that our Department of Public Instruction will not end up fronting for this frightening network.
