1) Florida has no State tax and 97% of Florida businesses don’t pay either. That doesn’t change.
What changes? The biggest 3% DO pay taxes already, but they received a free $6B windfall from the R. tax cut and Gillum wants them to put $1B to pay teachers properly.
My nephew’s 8th grade science teacher he told me tonight, is quitting in two weeks as this is her second job and her husband was “just drafted” so she needs SOME time for her kids.
I don’t know what “just drafted” means but I’m assuming reservists are recalled? I dunno.
Anyway, after him telling me that tonight, it really hit home.

She’s a favorite. But teaching just doesn’t pay enough in FL and that has to change.
” BEST SCIENCE TEACHER YOU CAN ASK FOR I LOVE HER ❤️”
“I love u Mrs.Schmidt! Your an awesome teacher and really nice. You complain about some of you bad classes but you still love all of us ”
” I like turtles…..and Mrs.Schmidt’s class………many funny jokes ”

” She’s nice and friendly 99.9 percent of the time until someone uses one brain cell to to the dumbest thing, and at this point she whips out her frickin drill sergeant yelling and accent to sort things out. In addition, we’ve had 2 homework assignments the whole year and this is the 4th quarter. Some who have trouble focusing may have trouble in the beggining of the year when she talks the majority of the time. “
