FL GOP wants to continue to privatize education. Why you shouldn't teach here!

If schools are privatized, students will inevitably be segregated and teachers will lose any benefits. What used to be a profession of low pay but decent benefits will become a profession of horribly low pay, awful benefits, and you’ll be totally unsupported by the state. The GOP hates public education here. It’s that simple.

Do not teach in Florida. If you’re graduating next month and want to go into education, don’t! Go back to school and get another degree. If you’re thinking of moving here or want a career change, then stay the heck away! You are doomed to a low paying, dead end job. As far as respect goes, parents, students, and administrators are often against teachers - even good ones. I hate to sound negative, but don’t say you weren’t warned if you don’t follow this advice.
