Editorial: Here’s why Florida can’t afford private school vouchers

Florida’s public schools are under funded, under staffed and under performing. Yet the solution supported by Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Republican-controlled Florida Legislature is to gradually starve them to death. They want to directly spend tens of millions in public tax dollars to pay for private school tuition for thousands of additional kids. It’s unconstitutional, unaffordable and unfair to the vast majority of Florida kids who would continue to attend public schools.
