FEA Action Alert

It’s time to kill the Best and Brightest bonus scheme

The Senate Education Pre-K-12 Committee held a bizarre meeting on Wednesday. Topics discussed at the meeting included class size and the notorious Best and Brightest Teacher "Scholarship" program. Both bills passed, but not before several committee members spoke against the bill that establishes the Best and Brightest program. Senator Legg (R-Lutz) was kind enough to finally allow the Senate to at least hear the bill and work through it.

It is clear that members of the Florida Senate are opposed to the Best and Brightest Teacher "Scholarship" Program. It’s time for members of the Florida House of Representatives to hear our opposition. Tell them to vote against the House Bill, HB 7043.

FEA is closely monitoring several other issues during the remainder of the legislative session. They include:

  • FRS (Retirement)
  • Testing
  • The budget
  • More requirements piled onto teachers and students

Don’t forget to send an email to the members of the Florida House of Representatives. You can even go a step further and call their offices. Find their contact information in the FEA Action Center under the Take Action tab. Scroll down and click on “Find Your Lawmaker”.

Stay tuned for next week’s update and have a great weekend.
