Friday Five – Episode 13 – 10/27/17

Governor Rick Scott blames “the system” for low teacher salaries

Today’s Friday Five is a mini-rant about the absurd position proffered by Governor Rick Scott at a teacher round-table recently. In essence, he blamed “the system” on why teacher salaries are so low here in the Sunshine State. This is the same man who cut one billion (yes, with a B) from education his first year in office, only to later tout the record investment in education a few years after when he put it back and essentially brought us to previous levels. Adjusted for inflation, even what we spend now lags the spending from a decade ago.

And after you listen, here’s the article if you want to read it for yourself.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
