4. Most military have degrees now.

Sure itís not education, but itís typically in a bachelor degree area. Sounds like the communities need to pay more for teachers. Having 9000 vacancies is not good. The educators are complaining about this, but what are their alternatives since weíre talking schools opening in two weeks. Theyíve had the entire summer to do something.

5. Most military do not have degrees.

The vast majority of enlisted are straight out of high-school. Not to mention this includes their spouses. Itís political theater just like the bs with Disney was. Do you seriously think a principal is going to hire any of those ďteachersĒ? It looks pro-military, pro-education and accomplishing nothing. Standard DeSatan smoke and mirrors. Itís inline with DeVos plan to break public education.

7. I can see where non-degreed people working in more like "aide" positions could be helpful. I fail to

see why being a vet would be more preferential than any other person's qualifications. Having extra help would be beneficial, especially in curriculums that have large class sizes but teaching requires significant education and preparation skills. This move smacks of attempting to devaluate teacher educational qualifications. Remove the "vet" preference and open up opportunities for others in aide type positions. That experience could perhaps count towards teaching degrees down the line if the person wants to complete that curriculum.
If someone is going to remove my appendix, I want an appropriately educated person to do the job. The same applies to people molding the minds of the next generation.
Personal observation: I have been married twice. Both were teachers, educators and had masters degrees. One of my daughters is a teacher. Her husband is a teacher. Teaching is a tough job and not everyone is suited for it. Being a vet has absolutely nothing to do with the person's ability to be a teacher. It is neither a plus or a minus really.

12. DeSantis is chipping away at PUBLIC education

His corporate donors smell all those tax-payers dollars in public education. This may also be pandering to the military in an election year. Yes, teacher shortages exist, but teachers in DeSatan's Florida have targets on their backs because of his "culture wars" propagandizing. Those who can will leave for places where they are not labeled the enemy nor used as political chew-toys to stir up rethug base.

14. Yes, but DeSantis is merely tapping in to a vein that has existed in Florida for decades and has

only gotten worse. Florida has been absolutely loaded with retirees,snowbirds, dreamers, schemers and others who paid taxes elsewhere and do not want to support the same quality of life for others here. Add in the political climate and ever reddening color of voters and public education has been struggling for a long time. Like you say....DeSantis just wants to finish it off.

13. Retired military are perfect teacher material economically

Unlike hiring a new teacher, veterans already have pensions and healthcare, so the state wonít have to spend $ on those things! Cheap bastards!

15. Perhaps I will apply for one of those spots.

Florida Republicans have worked hard to drive teachers from the classroom. Good teachers leave because they have alternatives and don't have to take the abuse stacked on them year after year. Untrained and undereducated veterans will, in effect, just be babysitters. It is a win/win for Republicans who depend on voters who have never developed critical thinking skills to keep them in power.

I guess Florida's next move will be to hire people on work release from prison.
