Teachers Say Governor Isnt Keeping His Promise

April 29th, 2008 by flanews

About a dozen teachers and school board members crowded into the Governors office Tuesday. The final budget proposal calls for major cuts to education. Some schools will lose more than a hundred and forty dollars per student compared to last year. Education leaders say teachers will be laid off and schools will be shut down. Governor Charlie Crist promised to hold education harmless while campaigning for a property tax cut approved in January. Kindergarten teacher Chris Ott said he doesnt expect the Governor to keep his promise.

I think the governor says Ill veto this bill unless it holds education harmless but hell probably just wash his hands and say, well its the legislature, said Ott.

Lawmakers will vote on the budget on Thursday and send it to the Governor.
