Florida governor and likely Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis signed universal school choice into law Monday, the latest in his long string of actions to reform education in the Sunshine State.

HB 1 creates an Education Savings Accounts (ESA) program giving families vouchers worth up to $8,000 to be spent on enrolling their children in schools of their choice outside the public education system. The new law expands Florida’s existing school choice program, which was previously available only to low-income families or disabled students, to all Florida students. Income level will still determine the order in which vouchers are distributed.

I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

Thank you Governor DeSantis for signing yet another conservative bill.  :patriot: :patriot: :patriot: :patriot:
I Believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.  I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

Texas is on the verge of doing the same thing.

Arizona, Iowa, Utah, Arkansas already have done this. ------- to name a few.

School choice is probably one of the most pro minority advancement steps you can take

Diversity, equity, and inclusion just rewards people based on their grievances

Pro-minority?  I know of cases where children were forced to be bused into other areas to help with diversity, equity and inclusion.  It didn't work.  Children were not among their peers as far as ethnicity and some of those children acted out.

Pro choice is a means to put children in nearby schools rather than being bused and having to ride for over an hour and getting home at a ridiculous time.  Waiting at a bus stop in the dark in order to catch the bus isn't safe.

We always sent our children to the closest elementary school.  We sent them to private schools from middle school through high school.  It wasn't cheap and I wish we had available $$ from the government to assist with tuition.

Go Ron!

When a child, of whatever race, is put in a situation where they can maximize their talents and ability, they will do much better in life. The Democrats know this. That’s why they fight school choice.

They would rather have minorities be victims and reward them for such. It’s a very dangerous and very wicked long-term game they’re playing.
