Vouchers: Playing the Numbers Game… #MyThinkTankIsSmarterThanYours


Today in Florida education… Matthew Ladner of the Goldwater Institute writes,

“Florida has been offering children with disabilities all of their state money in the form of a voucher since 1999. Last year, 5% of children with disabilities utilized the program. That’s right- only 5% after a decade.”

Ummmm…..where is the apocalypse? The mad rush for the exits? The terrible harm to schools and students?”

Quote: “That’s right- only 5% after a decade.”

I don’t have to have a fancy title at Goldwater to know 5% is poor odds… given the choice, only 5% chose??? And our Governor wants vouchers to be the only choice?

Apparently, 95% disagree…

..

I mean… if you want to play the numbers game, that is.

“… this one from no-holds-barred, pro-voucher Matthew Ladner of the Goldwater Institute”

Just say NO to think tank nonsense…

There is a name for people who are always wrong about everything all the time…

Hey, you know what Nostradamus… why don’t you sit this one out.
