I am really glad to see that a prominent Florida minister, Bishop Victor T. Curry-who happens to be black, is publicly calling on the Florida School Boards Associations and Florida teachers unions to drop their lawsuit against the nations largest private school choice program. Bishop Curry says it is “cruel irony” that the FEA and FSBA would file against the tax credit scholarship program on August 28, the anniversary of the “I have a dream” speech by Dr. Martin Luther King.
This harkens us back to the image of Democrat Governor George Wallace’s attempt to block the entry of black students into a “white” school. Today, it is the Democrat-supported Unions & School Boards who are blocking predominately black students from leaving their failing schools. Kudos to Bishop Curry for standing up against these public school zealots! We must put students first by increasing access to all forms of education.
