Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Democrats urge Crist to veto SB 6



From Sen. Charlie Justice, D-St. Petersburg (and running for Congress): “Senate bill 6 is the wrong legislation at the wrong time for our state. For every academic success we have in Florida, credit is given to some acronym-riddled program that’s created in the halls of Tallahassee. But every failure is laid at the feet of our hard-working teachers.” Read more here.

From Sen. Dave Aronberg, D-Greenacres (and running for attorney general): "This legislation is not about reform.  It is about punishment of teachers.  It is based on the arrogant view that Tallahassee bureaucrats and politicians are better suited to guide a child's education than their teachers, principals and parents."

From Sen. Dan Gelber, D-Miami Beach (also running for attorney general): "The problem with this bill is it assumes the best way to weed out bad teachers is to assume all teachers are bad." Read more here.
