Florida ranks as one of the worst states for teachers.

The low pay and micromanagement by administrators and bureaucrats is out of control.

Please GOTV for Gillum/King if we want any hope for change.

We have a statewide shortage of 4,000 teachers. I suggest if youíre a college student studying to teach, CHANGE YOUR MAJOR NOW!

I can not recommend teaching as a career option in FL!

1. So it's hotter than hell 90% of the year

Has the most lightening strikes of any other state, and the worst hurricanes you can imagine...well to be honest, they do have oranges.

So unless a teacher has a vitamin C deficiency, don't get a job teaching in Florida!

2. RedTideRick has destroyed both the environment and the teaching profession!

He must be destroyed politically to save this state!

3. Fired for giving zeros.

https://www.orlandosentinel.com/opinion/audience/david-whitley/os-ae-florida-teacher-fired-for-giving-zeros-david-whitley-20180925-story.html

Diane Tirado doesnít believe in giving credit where itís not due. The school she used to work at apparently does.

Tirado says she was fired from her job at a Port St. Lucie K-8 school because she insisted on giving students zeros if they didnít turn in an assignment.

4. I remember my math high school class...got 0 for homework not done

and 100 for class tests...so average was 50..

You telling me my teacher had no right to give me a zero?

I'm the one who got a zero, and I beg to differ...

6. I'll tell you that. Are/were you proficient in that particular math? If so, it shouldn't matter how

you acquired the knowledge and skill.

When you pick up a non-fiction book at the library, do you have to turn in papers about the content while you are reading the content. If you understand the content, that is all that matters.


Regarding math, English, SS and so forth, I believe there should be an option to just demonstrate proficiency....with or without setting foot in somebody's classroom. Knowledge and skills are important. Not how you got them.
