Include All School Employees
- Some plans currently in circulation account for “classroom teachers,” but there are many additional personnel who are vital to the success of Florida’s students. Whether it is instructional personnel such as counselors, media specialists, and paraprofessionals or non-instructional personnel such as clerical, maintenance, and bus drivers, all Florida’s educators are deserving of a significant investment in their salary.
Restore Local Control
- A large part of the reason teachers’ pay has been stagnant are legislative restrictions regarding salary increases. Lawmakers need to repeal regulations that mandate how salary increases must be provided.
