Welcome to Florida — where citizens who want good government have to sue for it

For the past few weeks, in a small courtroom up in Tallahassee, Florida has been on trial. It stands accused of denying children of a proper education. The plaintiffs are parents who say they're sick of underpaid teachers, punitive testing and politicians who divert public school money to for-profit companies.  Just last week, Florida finally settled another case where the state was accused of denying children proper health care. It took parents and pediatricians in that case 11 years. But they won. here
