This is a well-written and thought-out letter. Thanks for posting.

In private areas of the Internet, Florida teachers (indeed, teachers in many areas of the country) are signalling that they have had it. We feel trapped in an education system that has gone off the rails in its futile search of higher school grades, a system that no longer trusts its practitioners nor its customers (the students).

And that’s especially true for Florida. It is the worst state in America in which to teach.

Don’t go into this profession. If you are in a university college of education, change you major NOW!!!
