From our latest email: Next week begins the start of the second half of the school year, and also a very critical time for all Florida public schools. Governor-Elect Rick Scott has proposed a plan that would do away with Florida's current public education system in favor a of a statewide private vouchers program.
Scott will be inaugurated governor next Tuesday, January 4th. Please join us and public education supporters throughout Florida by "Wearing RED for Public Ed" and show your support for our public schools.
So far, Gov.-Elect Scott currently has no plan for helping our public schools get the funding they need to help our children. We will be holding him accountable for this, in addition to his unconscionable private vouchers plan.
Lets start by "Wearing RED for Public Ed" next Tuesday, January 4th.
In the weeks ahead, we'll be ramping up efforts to mobilize our fellow citizens here in Marion County to ensure our public schools are protected. Stay tuned.
