FEA poll: Even Republicans hate SB 6

2

April

By a nearly 3-to-1 margin, registered Republican voters say Florida should keep the current system of evaluating teachers, according to a new poll commissioned by the Florida Education Association.

The item gave readers two choices. Either: "We should change the system to end annual reviews of teacher performance and allow principals to fire a teacher without providing a reason or offering an appeals process." Or: "We should keep the current system of annual reviews of teacher performance and require principals to provide a reason for firing a teacher and offer them an appeals process."

Put that way, 73 percent of respondents felt either strongly or moderately about the latter. See more poll results here and here.
