The Florida Supreme Court has chucked the state’s voucher system. The court ruled it’s unconstitutional. Vouchers allow some children to attend private schools at taxpayer expense. In Florida, 700 students use the program to transfer from public schools the state considers failing. But the high court said different schools have different standards and some are exempt from state testing. Governor Jeb Bush campaigned on this eight years ago and criticized the ruling. State Representative Jeff Kottkamp is a Cape Coral Republican.
