Legislature Changes Proposed Teacher Pay Raise
Teachers won't just be getting the twenty-five hundred dollar pay raise previously proposed by Governor Rick Scott.
They will have to work for it.
Over the weekend, the House and Senate settled on a proposal to set aside almost four hundred and eighty million dollars to boost teacher pay.
The money is going to be tied to teacher performance rather then giving out automatic raises to every classroom teacher, which was Governor Rick Scott's original plan.
Legislators also plan to offer raises to all instructional personnel and not just classroom teachers.
