Orlando area teachers being gouged on rent.

Thereís a reason why teachers in Orange, Co Florida rejected the Districtís ďpay raiseĒ. Itís not affordable for teachers to work and live in Central Florida! Donít even think about coming here to teach. In fact, one might want to reconsider teaching altogether at the current rate of pay!


Considering Florida currently ranks near the bottom nationally in public school spending and Orlando rental prices are increasingly getting worse, it really should come as no surprise that a new study found that local teachers can barely afford to live here.

According to a report released today from real estate site Zillow, starting teachers in the Orlando area are spending 50.4% of their income on rent, compared with 42.4% for mid-level teachers and 37.3% for the highest-paid veteran teachers.

I hope the people of El Paso show up to protest Trump's arrival.

This will be interesting.

We need another March for Our Lives. They are not listening.

We need Moms Demand Action or another organization to put another march together thatís twice as big. We need a massive voter registration to get the NRA sycophants out of office!
