The incestuous and devious world of Florida's Academia Charter schools
Rep. Erik Fresen, who chairs the House panel that controls the education budget, is the brother-in-law of Academica founder and President Fernando Zulueta, which also operates Doral College. The president of Doral College is also a state lawmaker: Sen. Anitere Flores, R-Miami.
They hired representative Manny Diaz to be Dean
"He rose through the ranks in the public school system, which is impressive, and wanted to try something else," she said. "We are happy to have him at Doral College."
Zulueta said Diaz had "the right credentials and experience for the position."
My head is spinning.Okay in the article it points out that we have citizen legislators and they all have jobs but do they all have to introduce legislation that financially benefits them and their family members? Why does it seem to me that their goals are not to improve education but to improve their bank accounts instead?
