WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:
Not all teachers oppose Senate Bill 6. Fran Strayhorn is a kindergarten teacher at Gulfport Montessori She said it would force teachers to work harder.
While the bill’s opponents say it would place an undue burden on educators while leaving families off the hook when it comes to student success, Strayhorn says someone has to take up the slack.
She said that to expect some families to step up their involvement in their children’s education is wishful thinking.
Those who oppose the bill think it will repel new teachers from looking for work in Florida. Strayhorn said this was also a concern of hers, but one that could be remedied.
