Another $154 million, funded by sales taxes, would go to private school with this bill. The Florida Tax Credit Scholarship program already sends $873 million in corporate tax credits to schools that simply churn students in and out of public schools.
A few facts to memorize:
- 37% of FTC students are gone in one year and 61% in two years.
- Students who leave FTC schools are those who struggle the most.
- FTC schools are becoming more racially and economically segregated.
The House representative sponsoring the bill is Paul Renner from Palm Coast.
