FL GOP wants to continue to privatize education. Why you shouldn't teach here!

If schools are privatized, students will inevitably be segregated and teachers will lose any benefits. What used to be a profession of low pay but decent benefits will become a profession of horribly low pay, awful benefits, and youíll be totally unsupported by the state. The GOP hates public education here. Itís that simple.

Do not teach in Florida. If youíre graduating next month and want to go into education, donít! Go back to school and get another degree. If youíre thinking of moving here or want a career change, then stay the heck away! You are doomed to a low paying, dead end job. As far as respect goes, parents, students, and administrators are often against teachers - even good ones. I hate to sound negative, but donít say you werenít warned if you donít follow this advice.


Did Trump abuse his power today? He declared a national emergency to fulfill a campaign promise.

This should be an impeachable offense.

More evidence you shouldn't teach in Florida.

Read this article about how low the pay is in Florida. The GOP legislature hasnít done anything to correct the problem, nor will they. If you know a college student who wants to teach, send this to them. If you know someone from outside of FL who wants to teach here, send this. Please share this on social media as well.


I believe a Biden/Castro ticket would be formidable.

Biden could likely rebuild the midwestern Blue Wall and with Castro it would make TX very competitive. It would inspire Obama/Biden nostalgia but be a nod towards our multicultural future.

Biden wouldnít cost us a Senate seat the way it would if Sherrod Brown were to win.

FWIW, I think either Brown or Biden wins the nomination if either jumps into the race. But if both are in, they likely split votes and the nomination goes to someone else - not that thatís a bad thing.
