NO WAY FORWARD BUT THE THIRD WAY:

Florida Gov.-Elect Rick Scott Considers Dramatically Expanding School Vouchers (Stephanie Condon , 12/10/10, CBS News)

Lawmakers in Florida are considering significant free-market reforms to the education system, according to reports, which could influence education reforms nationwide.

On Thursday, Florida's Republican Gov.-elect Rick Scott suggested significantly expanding the state voucher system, the St. Petersburg Times reports, to grant every student an "education savings account." He said he's working with lawmakers to consider a plan to allocate a portion of state's per-student education funding into the savings accounts, letting parents use the money for any school of their choice, public or private.
