Best and Brightest “Scholarship” Program FEA Member Questionnaire

 

FEA is exploring the legal and organizational impact of the “Best and Brightest” program on our members. This is a one year program that provides scholarships to first year classroom teachers who scored in the 80th percentile or higher on the SAT/ACT and all other classroom teachers evaluated as “Highly Effective” and who scored in the 80th percentile or higher on the SAT/ACT.

 

 

To best assess this issue, and to determine the best course of action that FEA will need to take to protect our members’ interests, we need your input and contact information. Click on the following link to access our questionnaire. http://feaactioncenter.org/act/
