Florida Council of 100 Backs $2,500 Plan for Teachers

The Florida Council of 100 commended Gov. Rick Scotts proposal to increase the pay of full-time teachers $2,500 in the next fiscal year.

Having a quality teacher in every classroom is key to student learning, Marshall Criser III, chair of the Council of 100, stated in a release.

The governors proposal to reward educators for exemplary performance of vital duties such as teaching Common Core standards, fostering increased accountability, and helping close achievement gaps is a significant step for our entire K-12 system. The Council of 100 strongly encourages the Legislature to implement this concept as part of a comprehensive package of such policies aimed at increasing student performance.
