Fund Our Future: Public Education Rally

This is your chance to get involved with the movement to protect public education!

Sign up by sending your name and email address to Tammie.Brooks-Evans@Floridaea.org or with your Union Building Rep to attend the January 13, 2020 Rally in Tallahassee.

The elected leaders in the Florida Legislature continue to ignore the need to Fund Our Public Schools and employee salaries at a nationally competitive rate.

National Average Teacher Salary $60,477

            Average Teacher Salary in Florida $48,168

Educator voices must be heard! We must hold all of the legislators accountable for:

*Testing Mania

            *Low Pay

            *Value Added Measures

            *Annual Contracts for New Teachers

Florida is ranked 43rd in the nation when it comes to total public education funding and 46th in average teacher salary.  Because of this low rate of pay and bad policies, Florida is facing an unprecedented teacher shortage.

We must stand together on January 13th with educators from all over the state of Florida to DEMAND better! Please join us at the Rally in Tally. 

We hope that we can count on you to attend the rally on January 13, 2020.
