Teachers list frustrations in meeting with Rick Scott



teachers_and_rick_scott.From the Orlando Sentinel: In the quiet of a school library, more than a dozen Osceola County teachers shared their professional frustrations with Gov. Rick Scott this afternoon, challenging some of his policies and urging him to promote Florida's public schools. "I see the whole school system as the last bastion for every child…that poor kid you were, that I was, to really get up and get out," said Pauline Waggoner, a gifted teacher at Neptune Middle School in Kissimmee."We accept everybody who walks in the door. We take them, and we teach them, and we go from there." But teachers feel unfairly criticized, judged and micro-managed, she and her colleagues told the governor.
