Florida Board of Education Member Rebecca Fishman Lipsey dishonors Florida’s teachers
When talking about raising the passing scores for teacher certification tests, Mrs. Fishman-Lipsey said
Board member Rebecca Fishman Lipsey, a former teacher, said requiring higher scores is "giving honor to the profession" by making it a more exclusive club.
Okay I guess we can debate about that but my real question is what would she know, her only education experience comes through TFA and those teachers since they only stay for a cup of coffee will never have to take certification tests. Isn’t there a bit of hypocrisy her being in favor of tests she never took and is never going to have to?
Here is her teaching experience taken from her Linkedin bio:
Corps Member / NYC DOE Public School Teacher
Nonprofit; 1001-5000 employees; Education Management industry
2004 – 2006 (2 years) Greater New York City Area
She has some nerve talking about honoring the profession when she and the man who appointed her, Rick Scott so dishonor it.
This is an embarrassment to Florida.
