By all accounts, the Jericho School, a private facility opened 21 years ago in Jacksonville, does a wonderful job helping students with autism and other special needs succeed academically. That nearly all of its students are enrolled through two state voucher programs also reflects the fertile nature of Florida’s expanding educational choice landscape. In a […]

First of three parts. A Jacksonville attorney says that despite all the GOP rhetoric about the importance of matrimony, the Florida Legislature is poised to hasten its demise. Judith Erwin embodies most people’s definition of accomplishment, but she’s not so sure. She’s a successful family law attorney. She recently published her first novel, “Shadow of […]

It’s been a long time since I’ve written about the long-suspected, but largely disproven, link between vaccines and autism. Jenny McCarthy, the model, actress and co-host for the television show “The View”, is mother to a child who has an autism spectrum disorder. She’s taken some hellish Twitter flack lately for her belief that infant vaccines cause autism. Like Jenny, […]

Fischer’s move to change the district’s code of conduct […]

Ferguson. Sanford. Tallahassee. What do these three cities have in common? It’s not what you might think. It has nothing to do with perceived arch-villains such as Darren Wilson, George Zimmerman, or Jameis Winston. I don’t believe in arch-villains. I do believe, though, in the predictability of human nature. Sometimes, human beings behave badly. And […]

Rep. Debbie Mayfield, R-Vero Beach, has been listening to parent complaints about high-stakes testing. Mayfield, like most parents and educators, is so frustrated with the entire standards-based accountability system that she wants to give entire school districts the ability to “opt out” of standards-based tests altogether. Judging from an action alert obtained from a Tea […]

I have to laugh, or else I’d be crying. Certain religious fanatics offer a constant supply of fodder for TV comedians and columnists like me. Who doesn’t poke fun at Pat Robertson’s contention that “demonic” religions (like Buddhism!) can infect items you buy at the Goodwill store? But in truth, Christo-fundamentalist ideology is dangerous. As […]
