Florida says, not today jeb… not today.
Maybe there was a day… We remember 2010. We remember Jeb robocalling FL residents. We remember him calling us teachers and parents a ‘massive campaign of misinformed’. Now, we remember this year. We remember his foundation emails used the word ‘vitriol’, as defined in the dictionary: bitterly abusive.
Wow, really, jeb? Gee, that hurts…
See, we may not have as much money as these corporations pushing charter schools and standardized tests… but, the beauty of being a ‘citizen lobbyist’ is that we work for free.
And, we work overtime.
And, sometimes, just sometimes, all our hard work pays off…
Yesterday, Florida parents, teachers, PTA, FEA, unions, associations, and grassroot activists joined together in the Capitol and online to raise their voices. This time, we were heard. The “Parent Trigger” bill was killed with 20-20 vote on 3.9.12.
Not feeling too misinformed or bitter today … you?
