Rick Scott is right to support the rights of the parents to choose
the school their children attend.

Contrary to the Florida Supreme court ruling, the Florida constitution's Blaine Amendment and the Florida constitution's
"uniform public school" system requirement are not legally binding
because they violate the United States Supreme Court's ruling that
the "children are not the mere creatures of the state" and thus the states cannot compel the children to attend public schools.

Opponents of equal justice for students in private schools try to
limit the number of students attending such schools by denying an equitable share of the taxes collected for education of all students from covering some or all of the cost at private schools, unless those private schools are protestant run, of course.

Opponents of equal justice for students in Catholic run public schools oppose the presence of Catholic priests and nuns in those schools (as well as Catholic private schools) while they show no such opposition to protestant ministers teaching in protestant controlled public schools and protestant controlled private schools.

Likewise, they do not oppose taxes going to protestant private schools.
