There have been ZERO formal discussions about teacher raises in Duval County
That’s right friends despite the money being allocated months ago there have been zero formal discussions between the union and the superintendent. According to the union they are waiting for some dates from the super to get talks going. I guess if you make 270 grand there’s no real since of urgency, not that there seems to be much on the union’s part either. The problem is teachers don’t make 270 grand and a lot I know are hurting. People don’t realize it but the vast majority of us went two months without pay checks and yeah it’s true at the beginning of the summer we may have been sitting pretty, here now at the end it is the opposite for way to many.
Where it has been slow going in other parts of the state as far as I can tell at least it has been going.
