Florida Gov. Scott should veto the misbegotten K-12 education budget. Turn a deaf ear to his political foes’ contention that in doing so he would be caving in to (liberal) teacher’s unions. Swat down fantastical tales of overly larded public-school budgets. Decry, resolutely, the appallingly secretive deal-making between legislative leaders that, ultimately, leaves public schools gasping for air.
Rather, the governor needs to see House Bill 7069, for the disaster that it is — and, more important, the disaster it will mean for public-school students statewide.
