Tell Tallahassee: Fair Pay for Florida's Teachers!

To be delivered to The Florida State House and The Florida State Senate

Petition Statement

Our students deserve great teachers.

But here in Central Florida, our public school teachers are among the lowest-paid in the country. Instead, we should pay teachers a strong, competitive wage in order to attract top teaching talent, and encourage good teachers to stick with the profession.

Pass the Florida Teacher Fair Pay Act without delay!
There are currently 1,686 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

If our children are going to achieve their dreams, they need great teachers.

Unfortunately, here in Central Florida, our public school teachers are among the lowest-paid in the country. People don’t get into teaching for the pay, but we need to pay our teachers a wage that reflects the value of their work to our families.

We want to attract top teaching talent, and encourage good teachers to stick with it. We owe it to Florida’s children, and the long-term health of our economy and our state depend on it!

That’s why I'm introducing legislation to establish a minimum starting salary for Florida’s teachers of $50,000 per year. Our proposal is completely paid-for, and won't cause a dime of tax increases. Our children need qualified educators, and we can’t get there without paying our teachers a competitive wage.

Add your name: call on Tallahassee to pass the Florida Teacher Fair Pay Act!
