Wake-up Call: Susan Ohanian Tracks the Battle for Florida

[Comment from NYC Educator:
I think you ought to make clear that there is a bill in Florida that
will abolish tenure and make more than 50% of teacher salaries depend on
student test scores. I'm not sure your readers will necessarily know
that.]

This looks like the Florida edition of my announcements.
But everyone should play close attention to what's happening in Florida.
YOU are likely to be next.

Susan
