Sample Tweets about Vouchers
  • "Tax credit" voucher schemes divert public $ into unaccountable, private schools. This new voucher would be funded directly from general revenue funneling more funds from neighborhood public schools.
  • 2016 FL Supreme Court: "The diversion of money not only reduces public funds for public education but also uses public funds to provide for an alternative education in private schools that are not subject to the 'uniformity' requirements for public schools.
  • Supporters of the voucher refer to it as a way to help "low-income students," but a family of four w/an income of $77,250 would be eligible for the voucher in the 2019-20 school year
  • By 2022-23, the proposed voucher for “low income families” threshold is raised to $86,572--more than 1.5 times the median family income in Florida.
  • Our legislators must address the over 10,000 teacher vacancies projected next school year. This means increasing the base student allocation so teachers and staff can get raises they deserve.
  • All schools that receive taxpayer dollars should be held to the same meaningful accountability standards. To do otherwise is a disservice not only to the students who attend unaccountable schools but to the taxpayers who fund them.
