Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Teachers make how much?



Think teachers don’t earn enough? Researchers at the Manhattan Institute, a non-profit think tank that has supported many of Florida’s recent education reforms, might get you thinking differently. The group’s latest report, released today, contends that teachers – at least in Miami – earn 36 percent more than the average professional. They also state that increased teacher pay has no effect on improving graduation rates. Teachers, who are waging a battle in Tallahassee over whether student performance should impact their pay, of course will disagree. Don’t expect this argument to go down lightly.
