Florida is doing to teachers what they did to nurses. They are taking them away from their real job and making them paper pushers. And they will find they have a teacher shortage, just as they have a nursing shortage. More work, less pay = no more workers. Its simple to figure out, unless you are a greedy board member who gets paid for making the rules and never have to work that job.

"Teaching is rigorous"??? Speaking as someone who does manual labor to earn a living, I say Poppycock! I have been in a long term relationship with a teacher and I also have several friends who are teachers. As a group, Teachers are generally the whiniest bunch I have ever met. What they consider "hard work", many of us would consider "break time". Here's my advice. Suck it up and quit yer bitchin'. You people don't realize how easy you have it
