Can Florida teachers walk out too? It's not a good idea, unions say
April 4, 2018
As thousands of their colleagues in other states are walking out over low pay this week, some Florida teachers are wondering if they should be doing the same.
The list of grievances is long. A state budget that steered millions to school safety will mean less for teacher salaries. Lawmakers just passed legislation that weakens teachers unions, and they continue to shift money to charter schools and state-sponsored scholarships that pay private school tuition.
