Florida, the F word in education?
From a recent column in The Huffington Post: It's safe to say that for approximately 4 million teachers in our nation, education reform's F word is now -- Florida! Last month, Florida's Governor enacted a teacher merit pay bill. Legislators cunningly re-titled it, "The Student Success Act." This law and subsequent bills in queue are being torpedoed through the House. A combination of these bills will certainly dissuade anyone from becoming a teacher in the Sunshine State and, in turn, will dissuade companies to make Florida its home base.
