What raise did teachers get again?
The Governor reverted to form taking a victory lap over the legislature agreeing to give teachers at least a 2,000 dollar raise, which for most is less than the 5% they have lost over the last two years.

However buried in the fine print is the raise isn’t suppose to kick in till the 14-15 school year. The governor doing his best Last of the Mohicans impression told teachers, to hang on, submit, to somehow survive and then eventually he would throw us a few nickels.
Governor Scott if you are hoping to buy my vote, you are going to have to do a bit better than that.
