Tallahassee Democrat op-ed: Florida must find a way to rebuild bridges with its teachers

The op-ed in the Democrat is here.

A reader should not assume that I think the way we paid teachers in the past was fine.  For example, giving teachers raises for earning graduate degrees in education is not supported by research.

But state policy-makers should not assume that teachers are the enemy.  The state’s relationship with teachers should be rebuilt – that should be the policy priority.

I don’t believe the present proposals for adjusting Best and Brightest will accomplish that.
