During the last 24 hours, I have heard from two teachers in different parts of Florida about the Senate’s plan to limit Best and Brightest signing bonuses to exclude math and science teachers who do not complete traditional teacher education programs from Best and Brightest signing bonuses. Here, edited for anonymity, is what they said:
In the math departments, we are dying in the trenches. And there is no relief in sight.
I never would have thought that cutting back on a bad idea would make it even worse.
If you are a teacher and would like to add your comments, send them along.
