Fix inequitable treatment between charter, traditional schools, Sen. Gainer says Tampa Bay Times, 6/22/17

It came like a thunder-cloud, then lightening struck, and it was over." Gainer also has regrets. "Some of us really felt like this was not going to get past the governor,'' he said. "I thought he would veto it and we would get another crack at it. We will never let that happen again."

The sum does not include the 18 percent fee and other reimbursements that Newpoint received under generous management agreements that May secured with inexperienced local charter school boards, the affidavit states.
