School voucher supporters said they would get involved in Florida statehouse races this year -- and they are deliving on that promise.
Some evidence: this new mailer from the Florida Federation for Children supporting state Rep. Erik Fresen, R-Miami.
The education-themed mailer gives Fresen an A+ in three subjects: approving a record-high education budget, lowering college tuition costs and creating "more options" for parents (i.e. voucher programs and charter schools).
The Florida Federation for Children is a political communications organization that supports school choice. Its chairman is Tampa venture capitalist John Kirtley, who helped craft Florida's original voucher legislation in 2001. (Kirtley also chairs Step Up for Students, the non-profit organization that runs the state's largest voucher program.)
