SB 736 and House PCB KCOS 11: Teacher Quality



This Wednesday (February 23), Florida legislators in the House and Senate are voting on two anti-teacher education reform bills.


Teachers must show their opposition to proposed legislation that will increase student testing and eliminate due process if approved by the legislature.


Please join us this Wednesday at the State Capitol for the public hearings on Senate Bill 736 and its House version PCB KCOS 11.

If you can't make it to Tallahassee, please call or email your legislator and the members of both committees TODAY to express opposition to SB 736 and its House companion.
