Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Bill McCollum says governor caved to Alex Sink, unions on Senate Bill 6



Statement from Florida Attorney General and Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill McCollum:

“I am deeply disappointed Governor Crist succumbed to the pressure from Democrat Alex Sink and the unions by putting bureaucracy above the best interest of our children and teachers. The veto of Senate Bill 6 is a significant setback to our strides in education reform, which will limit Florida’s ability to compete on the world stage. We need to reward teachers and give them the tools to succeed, as was proposed in this legislation. As governor, I will lead the charge to enact reforms that will ensure our children and teachers are positioned to be the very best they can be.”
