From Pensacola to Key West and everywhere between, most Floridians can agree we want to have the strongest schools in the nation. In order to reach that goal, Florida must end its failed experiment with “performance pay” which has decimated teachers’ salaries over the past decade.
Did you know there are more than 20 laws and state rules regulating teacher pay? It’s no coincidence that as Tallahassee has taken more and more control over how teachers have paid that Florida’s teachers have plummeted to near the bottom in the nation for average teacher pay. It’s time for legislators to stop their one size fits all regulations and empower districts and local unions to make the best salary decisions for their local communities.
When this happens, students can attend fully-staffed schools with vibrant arts and music programs and the small class sizes to make sure they receive the one-on-one attention they deserve to help them excel beyond their wildest dreams.
