Report Highlights Disservice to Students, Parents and Taxpayers
A comprehensive report released today by People For the American Way explores mismanagement and failed policies in Florida’s education system under Governor Jeb Bush and Education Commissioner Jim Horne.
The report, “Dereliction of Duty: Florida’s Failed Education Policy,” is an accounting and analysis of how Florida’s policies on vouchers, tuition tax credits, homeschooling, high stakes testing, class size reduction and even the management of the state’s pension fund have done a disservice to students, parents and taxpayers.
“This report will help People For the American Way’s more than 45,000 Florida members and supporters shed light on the failings of the state’s education policies,” said Ralph G. Neas, president of People For the American Way. “Instead of providing a strong public education for every child, Governor Bush’s administration has zealously pursued risky experiments and played political games when they should have been developing meaningful policies.”

Dereliction of Duty is one of a series of reports on vouchers, tuition tax credits, the voucher movement and other important issues in education.
