Former Governor Jeb Bush had originally introduced "opportunity scholarships" 15 years ago. Bush and Governor Rick Scott and have championed the scholarship program, saying it helps students get into schools that their parents otherwise could not afford.    The lawsuit by the Florida Education Association (FEA), a federation of teacher and education workers' labor unions, and other critics of the plan was filed in Leon County Circuit Court.

Arizona mom who left children in hot car regains custody

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/29/2014 - 07:28
By David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - An Arizona woman who attracted national attention in March when she left her two young children in a hot car while at a job interview regained custody of them on Thursday, her lawyer said.     Shanesha Taylor, whose tear-stained mug shot was broadcast widely and generated nearly $115,000 in donations, will be allowed to take her two sons home from state care immediately and without restrictions under a ruling by a juvenile court judge, said attorney Benjamin Taylor.     “Today is a great day,” the lawyer told Reuters. “She is very happy that she will be reunited with her children and be able to care for them again.”     Taylor's children were taken away after police found her two boys, a 6-month-old infant and a 2-year-old, alone in a locked vehicle in March, with temperatures inside surpassing 100 degrees F.     Her children were buckled into the backseat of the vehicle, sweating profusely and in apparent distress, police said.
